October 2021 Spotlight Award: Core Values

Employee of the Month: Mary Derick

Heflin, Alabama Foam Plant

Rusken’s Employee of the Month celebrates an employee who has gone above and beyond in exhibiting Rusken’s Core Values, which include earnest, being a savvy problem solver, and exhibiting a can-do spirit.

General Manager Tim Hughes and Production Manager Quincy Gooden, both of our Heflin, Alabama facility, were excited to collaborate with their leadership team to award Mary Derick Employee of the Month. Mary is a member of the Heflin Foam Plant Production Crew. Although Mary has been with Rusken Packaging for only a short time, starting on December 7, 2020, her positivity and can-do attitude has earned her quick recognition by her peers. Mary shows up to work on time, every day, eager to get the day started and ready to motivate her teammates. She is also always willing to lend a helping hand to anyone who needs it. Mary is a great asset to not only the Heflin team, but to our entire organization.


Congratulations on the recognition Mary! We would like to thank you for all that you contribute, and for always exemplifying our Core Values.
