The nomination reads: “I would like to recognize Stacy, for not only her amazing work ethic, but for her kindness, compassion, and non-stop hard work. Stacy is always willing to help without complaint, no matter how busy she is. She goes above and beyond not only for her patients, but her co-workers as well. Any time I’ve ever needed anything, from assistance with a transfer to spending 20 minutes in the parking lot listening to me vent, she doesn’t hesitate. Stacy’s the true definition of what St. Anthony’s is all about. Thank you for all you do!”

The nomination reads, in part:

“Angie Wilhite really cares about her patients and people in general.  Every time I woke up and saw her name on my board as my nurse, I knew I was going to have a great day.  

If she saw that I was feeling down on myself, she would tell me something good about me to make me feel better. Not only is she a great nurse, she is an amazing person.  

I haven’t seen my children in a full year. My ex-wife is bringing them to see me before I go. Angie saw how excited I am to see them and, without asking, she took me to the gift shop to buy my two boys some gifts so I had something to give them for Christmas. She knew I had no money and did that out of the goodness of her heart. Angie went above and beyond for me.

Helping Hands Award winners

Congratulations to Renee Rockwell and Diane Kaufman, co-shepherds of St. Anthony's Mission Team's Franciscan Outreach Committee from 2009 through 2015, who have been honored with a Helping Hands Award for their tireless community service.

Renee and Diane spent time helping to coordinate various charitable gift drives hosted by the committee, handling myriad details campus-wide, and discussing logistics with numerous wonderful employees who braved foul weather and snowstorms to help the goods reach their proper destination. Over the years, the Franciscan Outreach Committee has expanded its focus from those in need in the St. Anthony of Padua parish of south St. Louis into Kirkwood, Carondelet, Lemay and Jefferson County.

The Helping Hands Award is open to all employees, including managers, directors, and senior leaders, to recognize their commitment to the community through volunteer work.
