Trailblazing is a state of mind at Midco.® We’re not exactly hacking at brush or scaling mountains here, but we believe in approaching challenges as adventures, embracing diversity and having the confidence to be genuine in all interactions. It’s an energizing way to approach life – and it is something we see in our team members every day. They are the passion, positivity and commitment behind Midco – for our customers, communities and each other.
That’s why we’ve decided to shine the spotlight on some special team members – with the new Midco Trailblazer Stories.
Lighting the Way in Lawrence
As Retail Manager in Lawrence, Vivian Sanders does more than provide excellent customer service. She is a constant source of positive energy for her team. Her honesty and kindness makes a difference in the lives of her customers and coworkers – and in her community.
From building genuine relationships with senior citizens to her passion and advocacy for people with diabetes – especially kids – Sanders seeks to lead by example and show others how we can all make the world a better place.
"Vivian’s a Trailblazer, because she lives the core value of treating others like you would want to be treated yourself. She doesn’t take a new obstacle as a challenge or burden. She looks at that as an opportunity to turn it into something positive."
- Debra Schmidt, Midco Sales Strategist
