The Purpose Champion award recognizes employees who are a living representation of our purpose statement: To do everything in our power to stand with our members in sickness and in health. These employees also exemplify our core values of integrity, respect, commitment and caring.
2013 marked the first year for this award, which was presented to Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma employee Jenny Koetter. Jenny is a Caring Van Specialist with the Oklahoma Caring Foundation, providing care, comfort and preventive health to thousands of underserved children in Oklahoma.
In May 2013, Jenny also led the effort to provide nearly 800 tetanus shots to tornado victims, volunteers and first responders in central Oklahoma.
