“I am so proud of Traci for all she has accomplished, and I honor her and wish her 20 more years with us,” said Dennis Anderson, owner and operator of the Landfall McDonald’s, in the release.

Knowles prides herself on being on time for every shift she works and for being named “Crew Member of the Month” on more than one occasion, McDonald’s officials said in the release.
