Every year the committee would sit down in a room and review the nominations and select the winner of manager of the year by voting. Each winner received a $1,000 Keybank gift card and a plaque of recognition. All of the nominees received a $150 AMCR gift certificate and a plaque.

In 2014, the committee was unable to come up with a clear winner for 2013, therefore the committee held a draw for choosing the winner. Associate of the Year’s winner was Jeffrey Lashomb and manager of the Quarter’s winner was Kanvvy Palmer.[4]
