MSA Gets the Gold!!!

MSA Gets the Gold!!!


Martin Starnes & Associates, CPAs, P.A. (MSA) has been recognized for our wellness standards in the workplace and presented the Gold WellBusiness award at a recent recognition breakfast event at Catawba Valley Community College. The WellBusiness Advisory Council identified companies in Catawba County who are committed to worksite wellness practices and policies that help prevent cancer. Companies meeting evidence-based worksite wellness standards in the areas of tobacco, physical activity, nutrition, cancer screening, and policy and organizational support are invited to apply for gold, silver, or bronze WellBusiness recognition.

 Some of MSA’s accomplishments this year include supplemented gym memberships at the YMCA, healthy living classes provided by Lala Kozicheck, YMCA Corporate Wellness & Diabetes Prevention Program Director, and onsite biometric screenings. Our most memorable event was our onsite cooking class with April Vigardt and Delane Mitchell from the Catawba County North Carolina Cooperative Extension. Employees learned how to cook three dishes using fresh, local produce. After the educational demonstration, April and Delane treated our group to delicious samples of meat and meatless zucchini fritters; beet, cucumber & celery relish; and spring slaw with homemade Green Goddess dressing. Employees were provided a grocery bag full of fresh vegetables to take home and recreate what they learned in class. What a treat and great way to spend a lunch hour!
