This week, LeadingAge Florida honored former Westminster Communities of Florida Board of Directors chairwoman Marjorie Phillips for her extraordinary contributions to the residents and team members of Westminster Communities of Florida.
The announcement was made at LeadingAge Florida’s 59th Annual Convention and Exposition, held at the Signia by Hilton Orlando Bonnet Creek.
Phillips has served in nearly every position on the boards of directors and regional committees of the organization. This includes tenure as chairwoman of the Board of Directors of Presbyterian Retirement Communities, Westminster’s parent organization, as well as the Board of Directors of Westminster Retirement Communities, which is Westminster’s division of affordable Rental Retirement Communities serving older adults with low to moderate incomes.
“I am so appreciative of the nomination by Westminster and somewhat stunned that I would be given an award for doing something I so loved doing,” Phillips said, after receiving the award.
“Serving at Westminster was one of the great blessings in my life.”
Throughout her service, Phillips led Westminster through countless changes in the overall field of senior living and within the organization itself. Current Board of Directors chairman John Hillenmeyer said, “On behalf of the entire Westminster Communities of Florida Board of Directors, I want to congratulate Marjorie on her many years of dedication to serving the thousands of residents and team members of our organization. She led us through many successful changes as we grew, while at the same time helping us to always keep our eye on our Mission. Congratulations to Marjorie on a job very well done!”
Westminster’s Chief Executive Officer, Terry Rogers, also congratulated Phillips. “I am so delighted that LeadingAge Florida acknowledged the incredible service to our organization that Marjorie Phillips contributed over the years. It has been my pleasure to work with her during some of her tenure, and I congratulate her on this wonderful honor.”
Westminster Communities of Florida is proud to have such an exceptional leader contributing to our Mission. It is through her hard work that we have been able to serve older adults throughout Florida and make the greater communities we serve stronger at the same time.
Please join us in congratulating Marjorie Phillips on this award!
