Congratulations to THP alum Jay Bellucci, who was honored November 14th as the 2014 ROSE (Recognition of Service Excellence) Award winner in the dining category! Jay has worked as a cook at Vincenzo's Italian Restaurant for the past year.
From Jay's nomination page:
Jay is always on time, never says “no,” and is consistently learning ways to better himself as a server to his guests, a co-worker to his fellow staff members and an employee for both Jonathan, the general manger, and Vincenzo, the owner. By taking all of these qualities and rolling them in to one person you get not only a server with a great attitude but a great provider of hospitality.
"My parents were right next to me (when the award was announced) and it was cool for me to be there with them. To everybody that voted for me, I just want to give a big thanks. I’m very grateful. It has been a very cool experience. My entire journey in sobriety thus far... it just keeps getting better and better," Jay said.
"I came into detox (at The Healing Place) on March 27, 2012. The past two years and seven and a half months, I just see the promises coming true. They've been coming true and it just keeps getting better and better. I’m not sure anybody could have convinced me of that when I was checking into detox, but it’s true. The way that my life has become, it’s unbelievable… absolutely unbelievable."
