13-year-old becomes a strong link in the chain of generations

When Jordan Neumann was called in to help with an activity at Pinnacle Nursing and Rehabilitation Center last week, he had no inkling that the call wasn't entirely true.

There was a party, all right, but his help wasn't needed. The party was for him.

Residents and staff at Pinnacle decided to honor the 13-year-old Helper Junior High student for giving up his summer days to help with various chores around the center.

The celebration was complete with cake, speeches from staff and residents, and congratulations from Price Mayor Joe Piccolo and his wife, Barbara.

Jordan's summer of service began with visits to his 94-year-old great-great-grandmother, Emma Espinoza, a resident.

One thing led to another, and soon Jordan was assisting with events and all sorts of other services to residents.

"Jordan has brought a new youthful vibe to the building and all the residents are loving it," said Activities Director Roxy Reynolds in her speech at the party.

The guest of honor himself was speechless, too surprised to talk.

However, he has indicated an interest in becoming a long-term care administrator some day.

Jordan is the son of Kendall Neumann and Erika Sarich. Sarich is Resident Advocate at Pinnacle.
