Marsha McDaniel, auxiliary coordinator, presented McClure with the award at the annual Gordon Hospital Auxiliary Banquet held recently at The Red Door Café.
“I am very pleased to present this award to Henrietta,” McDaniel said. “Not only does she serve as a hospital volunteer, but she is also a volunteer chaplain. She is truly a wonderful asset to our Auxiliary and to Gordon Hospital.”
After McDaniel welcomed the volunteers and guests to the banquet, a prayer was offered by Judy Jackson, director of development services for Gordon Hospital. Following the dinner, entertainment was provided by guitarist and soloist Rebecca Owen.
Pete Weber, president and CEO of Gordon Hospital, expressed his appreciation to the volunteers prior to the award presentations.
