Cassie Hughes of Hurricane, Utah, and manager of FiiZ Drinks, (a popular spot to pick up your favorite beverage) is described by her staff as the “MOM” of the business, treating each of them as if they were her own kids. Casssie is their cheerleader, encouraging and training them in their jobs – never criticizing, which is sometimes an anomaly in a boss or supervisor.
Her acts of service are never ending. She invited a lonely, struggling employee to join her and her family on a family vacation. A frightened employee with a flat tire called her at 11:00 p.m. She and her husband, Chad, soon arrived to change the tire and rescue a member of her FiiZ family. These are just a couple of the never-ending examples of charity Cassie shows to friends, co-workers, and total strangers alike.
A compassionate community supporter, she stops by with drinks for lunch workers as they deliver school lunches at various drop off points. She takes meals to tired truck drivers whenever she sees them parked for a brief rest. She is a strong supporter of the police department and those serving in law enforcement, always greeting them warmly and expressing her gratitude whenever they drop by FiiZ for a soda or treat.
Cassie Hughes is the type of individual who grasps every opportunity to show kindness and will never turn her back on someone in need. A staff member said of Cassie, “She is a genuinely good person.” Cassie exemplifies beautifully, the characteristics of a Hurricane Valley Hero.
