Teaching the Next Generation

With more than 25 communities in multiple states, you would think Merrill Gardens President and Chief Operating Officer Bill Pettit would already have his hands full. But Bill is not a man who likes to have even a few of his fingers idle for any length of time.

Under Bill’s supervision, Merrill Gardens is leading the new Senior Living Management Program at Washington State University’s Everett Campus. Bill will coordinate on-site training experiences for the WSU students in the Merrill Gardens Mountlake Terrace Community.

It’s a fantastic story, and the Everett Herald was kind enough to feature it last week. Thanks to Jim Davis for covering this, and thanks to everyone participating in the curriculum. Take a read through The Herald’s coverage of this truly one of a kind program.

Merrill Gardens Gives Back to the Community

We want to congratulate the warm hearts and giving spirit of Merrill Gardens of First Hill, Willow Glen and The Patrician. These three communities all participated in events to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.

First Hill raised close to $5000 through their fundraising and participation in the Walk to End Alzheimer’s in Seattle, while the folks from The Patrician hit the streets of San Diego. At the same time, Willow Glen hosted their own fundraising event. It was all part of Merrill Gives Back Month. Great job guys!

There are too many great photos for one blog post, so make sure to check out the photo albums on our Facebook Page.
