Each month, KBH employees who have reached a benchmark anniversary receive a special recognition from the Senior Management Team. Additionally, at the annual spring fling, they receive a certificate of appreciation and recognition. This year, since we are hosting an outdoor event, we will be sending everyone's certificates to them directly. Please join us in recognizing this year's honorees. We thank the following staff members who have celebrated a benchmark anniversary during the last 12 months.
