 NVRH Seeks Nominations for John Elliott Community Service Award

Dr. John Elliott was a community-minded humanitarian, loved and respected by all. From picking up trash by the side of the road to his many and varied volunteer commitments to area institutions and causes, he quietly and humbly left things better than he found them.

In his memory, Northeastern Vermont Regional Hospital created the Dr. John Elliott Community Service Award, which is an award given to a current NVRH employee who demonstrates volunteer service to the community outside of NVRH. This award is for volunteer work outside of an employee's job at NVRH.

This is the second year of the award. Last year, Linda Garey, LPN and surgical technician in the operating room garnered the award. for her many volunteer activities in the community, including her care of Arnold Park and raising funds to repair the fountain, dressing up as Buckle Bear to teach children about the importance of wearing seat belts and volunteering in her church.

The applicant may be self-nominated, nominated by someone from NVRH or nominated by someone from the community at large. Nominations close on April 1; a committee will review the nominations and the winner will be notified on May 1. The winner will then be honored at the annual NVRH Recognition Dinner in June, 2010.
