I have lived in Monticello for the last 10 years with my husband and two
children. I have worked at Kirby Medical Center for five years. I started
as a full-time phlebotomist in the laboratory. In the spring of 2014,
I went part-time and started school to pursue my bachelor’s degree
in nursing. I will graduate from Millikin University this December.
I was very grateful and excited to be a recipient of the Kirby Medical
Center Auxiliary scholarship. The scholarship has eased the financial
burden of getting an education. It has helped me put my full concentration
on learning, be an active member of my community and school campus, as
well as dedicate time to my children.
As an employee of Kirby Medical Center, I have seen the difference the
Auxiliary members have made in the community as well as the hospital.
In a community the size of Monticello, we are blessed to have Kirby Medical
Center because of all the services offered. Kirby has allowed members
of this community to have access to the best healthcare. The efforts of
the Auxiliary members are felt by their volunteerism and fundraising efforts.
They are a vital component of what makes Kirby Medical Center a special place.
