Leading Age Florida’s Distinguished Service Award Given To Westminster COO Garry Hennis

August 25, 2020

Congratulations to Garry Hennis

LeadingAge Florida honored Westminster Communities of Florida’s Chief Operating Officer, Garry Hennis, for his extraordinary leadership and service to older adults with its Distinguished Service Award today.

Hennis was recognized for his exceptional dedication to older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as a career of distinguished leadership and mentorship in the field of senior living. In the award presentation, Westminster CEO Terry Rogers said, “Garry brings forth this passion for those residents living and team members working in our communities. He is an advocate for our field, and he is respected by so many of his peers across the country.” Rogers added, “No one is really more deserving of this award than Garry.”

“I am humbled and grateful today to be here receiving this award,” Hennis said. “Individuals like myself don’t get here alone. It is because of the wonderful people we serve with, the amazing leaders I’ve had the good fortune of being mentored and supported by, that even makes this possible. Without all of our team members, we wouldn’t have a Mission to serve.”

This year’s awards were given at LeadingAge Florida’s 57th Annual Convention, held as a virtual convention.
