East Texas Medical Center Tyler will recognize its volunteers during the annual ETMC Tyler Volunteers awards luncheon at Willow Brook Country Club on Wednesday, April 17.

"The 103 active adult members contributed more than 21,000 hours of service to the hospital and related ETMC facilities in 2012 – a gift value of their time and talents equating to nearly half a million dollars," announced Bob Evans, ETMC Tyler administrator/CEO.

"This is a tremendous contribution, and we're proud to honor our volunteers by presenting service awards to them. Their helping hands and caring hearts truly enhance the healthcare environment," said Evans. "In addition, the ETMC Gift Shop and other ETMC Volunteer fundraising projects have a highly positive impact for our hospital and those we serve."

Sharon Howell, president of Travel Masters, will spotlight the ETMC Tyler Volunteers 2013 theme – "A Journey of Service" – in the keynote address.

At the luncheon, the adult ETMC volunteers also will announce the scholarships it is awarding to nine outstanding high school students who have all served as ETMC Junior Volunteers. Each of these young people will receive a college scholarship of $1,000: Robert Austin Turner, Chapel Hill High School; Csarina Tulio, Rahil Doctor, Brianna Cooper and Ruhama Shakhawat, Robert E. Lee High School; Courtney Johnson and Cody Collins, Bishop T. K. Gorman High School; Bailey Franklin, The Brook Hill School; and Emily Fillippa, Troup High School. The nine graduating seniors, who plan careers in the healthcare field, will be presented at the event.

According to Jacque Fowler, ETMC Volunteer Resources director, "Our volunteer family makes it possible for extraordinary things to happen at ETMC Tyler. Men and women with big hearts and a joy for serving others are essential to our mission of care."
