Stearns Training Center

Published: June 15, 2017


In May 2017, Bridgewell’s board of directors and staff gathered for a special dedication of Bridgewell’s Training Center in honor of past President & CEO Bob Stearns.

Throughout his 13 years, Bob’s thoughtful and caring leadership was not limited to the people Bridgewell serves but also its employees. He demonstrated his commitment to Bridgewell staff in both big and small ways, such as Employee Recognition Night, the FISH philosophy, Fun Fridays and handwriting birthday cards to all 1400 staff members.

The Bridgewell Training Center, where it begins for all new staff, will now be the Stearns Training Center. In his role, Bob made professional development, training and safety his top priorities and ongoing, professional development a Bridgewell hallmark.

Board President Robin Sutherland said in her remarks, “While Bridgewell has a long history, you built the heart of who we are and what we do today, and it continues to beat on.”
