GR8 Job: Award-winning nurse says she's God's 'fingerprints' | Health
Holly Woody is a nurse at the Jonesboro Human Development Center and she's doing a GR8 Job.
Recently she was named the Arkansas State Employees Association’s 2013 Outstanding State Employee.
She beat out 25 other state employees who were nominated to receive the award and a check for $1,000.
Woody, a health professional for 12 years, is described by her peers and supervisors as “dedicated, dependable, knowledgeable and professional.”
In addition to her work at the Jonesboro HDC, Woody also works at a local hospital. The registered nurse also volunteers her time to cook for families in her community who have lost loved ones, and assists those with ill family members by doing household chores and yard work.
Woody credits God with making her the best possible nurse she can be.
“God blesses each of us and this is a blessing from Him,” she said after winning the award. “It is because of Him that I am the nurse I am. My goal is to just be His fingerprints wherever I go; whether that be with my residents, hospital, community or church and family.”
She added, “It is such an honor to receive this award.”
Woody has received numerous awards for her dedication. She is a two-time recipient of the Service First Award, the Best Nurse of the Baptist Hospitals, and Nurse of the Year at the Surgical Hospital of Jonesboro.
