River Edge Veterans Day Celebration

MACON- River Edge Behavioral Health is hosting a Veterans Day event to honor all its team members who are veterans of military service at its 175 Emery Highway location on November 4, 2021, at 11 am. River Edge looks forward to honoring our team members for their contributions to this country and its freedom.

Dr. Shannon Terrell Gordon, River Edge CEO says, “River Edge team members are the heart and soul of our mission to deliver services, and supports that deliver recovery, resilience and inclusion for individuals with mental illness, substance use disorders or intellectual and developmental disabilities. We want to honor our hero’s military service.  It’s just another way River Edge team members make life better in our community.”

Kam Riggins, River Edge Trainer says, “We would like to honor our former soldiers by showing gratitude for their sacrifice and commitment while increasing veteran presence to show the embodiment of excellence, passion, integrity, and respect throughout River Edge. Through diversity and out of the box thinking, we can achieve new heights. Together we are better than the sum of one.”
