The Regional Medical Center (RMC) Auxiliary hosted their annual Spring Luncheon on Tuesday, April 23, 2024. During the luncheon, Pat Blakesley was recognized with the Bright Star Award for her dedication and commitment to Auxiliary. 

This award is presented annually to an Auxiliary member who has shown outstanding generosity and kindness of spirit. Pat has been part of the Executive Board and chairperson of the Auxiliary Scholarship Committee since December of 2014. 

Over the years, Pat expressed that the best thing about being on the Board is having the opportunity to utilize Auxiliary monies to assist the hospital in obtaining beneficial equipment. In addition, she has had a front row seat to see the growth of the annual Auxiliary scholarships that are awarded to three local students seeking an education in human healthcare. 

“On behalf of the RMC Auxiliary, we express our gratitude to Pat for being a Bright Star for the Auxiliary by giving her time and talent for the betterment of Regional Medical Center patients, families, services and facilities,” shared Charlotte Emerson, RMC Auxiliary President. Want to learn more about the Auxiliary and how to get involved?
