This past Tuesday, December 13th, was a landmark day for Trusted Senior Specialists (TSS) and its Houston Senior Outreach program, capping off an award-winning year for our nationwide Medicare, Health, and Life insurance agency. Mr. Ed Kelly, Senior Coordinator for Texas State Representative Dr. Alma A. Allen’s office, visited TSS headquarters that historic afternoon, during our annual Winter Wonderland Luncheon for staff, local agents, and esteemed industry guests.
There, in the year-end embrace of our local TSS family and supporters, Mr. Kelly surprised Michael and Melinda Wilhelm, the visionary founders of TSS, with tandem awards for their unwavering support of the Greater Houston area senior community. He also presented an award to our industrious Care Coordinator, Nikki Ellis, for her sacrifices, commitment, and dedication to helping Representative Allen’s office build better lives for the seniors in Texas House of Representatives District 131.
Taking Care of Our Community One Outreach Effort At a Time
Indeed, in just a few months into her 2016 tenure as TSS Care Coordinator, Nikki has warmly blanketed the Houston area with interactive, entertaining, and comprehensive free events, designed to educate, empower, and advocate for its widespread, rapidly growing senior population. From the Houston Food Bank to Meals on Wheels for Greater Houston, Nikki also spearheaded the contribution of gifts and much-needed supplies to over 175 seniors this chilly, holiday season.
Additionally, she successfully coordinated a blanket drive for the United Way of Greater Houston, and hosted a charitable contributions campaign for Houston’s Operation Stocking Stuffer. Her free, educational enrichment classes were a hit with local seniors throughout this banner year, ensuring that attendees were armed with information on how to transition into, and manage, their Medicare benefits. And on a national level, this politically-charged November saw Nikki coordinating the mass transport of enthusiastic Houston seniors to the polls, for early voting in the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election.
So, what was conceived in a South Texas home office in 2001, TSS, despite having spiraled up into over 5,000 licensed agents, serving the needs of beneficiaries in all 50 states of this great nation of ours, still has a positive, local impact on senior beneficiaries in Houston--its heartbeat--the city of its birth. And for that, all of us here at TSS headquarters especially, are truly, humbly, grateful. From Michael and Melinda Wilhelm, all of the dedicated TSS leadership and staff, and the tireless TSS agents in Houston, surrounding Texas, and nationwide, we wish each and every one of you the Most Blessed of Holiday Seasons.
