Lourdes associate wins 2012 Mission Award | People
MCCRACKEN COUNTY, KY (KFVS) - Lourdes has announced the award winner for their 2012 Sister Mary Eleanor Mission award.
Misty Waller was named the award winner during Lourdes annual service awards banquet. Waller was voted on by her peers for exhibiting the core values and mission of Lourdes in helping extend the healing ministry of Jesus.
“Misty is a compassionate leader and leads by example,” said Tim Kissell, Lourdes Hospice Manager. “She has grown in her role over her years as a leader and embraces the sacred work of hospice and homecare.”
The Sister Mary Eleanor Mission Award, established in 1988, is named for Sister Mary Eleanor Rahig, a leader in the first group of St. Franciscan Sisters at Lourdes who set the standard for patient care and employee relationships that truly continue the healing mission of Christ.
Beginning with their first day, Sept. 19, 1959, the sisters inspired those employed at Lourdes to work to exhibit behaviors toward one another, patients, family, physicians, volunteers and visitors, that assure the mission of Lourdes is effectively and mutually experienced.
Each year the organization recognizes one leader who has been visible in exemplifying Lourdes’ Core Values of Excellence, Human Dignity, Justice, Compassion, Sacredness of Life, and Service.
The award was announced and presented during the organization’s Annual Service Awards Banquet held in January. Misty is a 13-year associate of Lourdes. She serves as the Finance Manager for Lourdes Hospice. Misty received a travel voucher, plaque, and certificate.
