Herington Hero Award Winner, Yvette Ebright

By Haley Jones, Director of Development and Marketing

Home Health and Hospice of Dickinson County in Herington, an affiliate of Memorial Health System in Abilene, has selected the next Herington Hero Award from the nominations gathered in March.  Congratulations Yvette Ebright, and thank you for taking care of Herington!

Evette’s nomination had this to say about her: 

“Yvette volunteers at the FRE (Family Resource Exchange).  She works so hard to keep our store looking nice, and she gives many, many hours each month.  She is also willing to do whatever she can to help anyone in need.  Yvette is kind to everyone and never has a bad word to say about anyone.  She is also a very patient person.”

Kesa Riffel, Office Coordinator for Home Health & Hospice of Dickinson County, contacted Yvette to let her know that she was nominated as the next Herington Hero, and she was very surprised.  “This feels undeserving”, she said.  Kesa asked her why she volunteers her time at the FRE and Yvette told her that she loves to shop at secondhand stores and thrift shops.  While shopping at the FRE one day, she was asked if she would want to volunteer there, so she said yes.  She added that she enjoys volunteering there because they have a lot of fun and it doesn’t feel like work.

Home Health and Hospice of Dickinson County in Herington plans to continue doing this every month.  April 1 starts round 11 of nominations.  If you know someone deserving of this award and want to share it with the Herington community, please fill out the form online at: http://mhsks.org/herington-hero-award/ or stop by the Herington office at 11 N Broadway, we’ll be happy to see you!

If you or your business would like to help sponsor a hero for a month, please contact us at 785-258-3611 or stop by our office.  We not only recognize our hero by sharing their story but also give them a small token of appreciation.  We would love to open this opportunity up to anyone who wants to help us award these amazing individuals.
