Hudson, Florida (August 25, 2015) – Regional Medical Center Bayonet recently honored its teen volunteers at its 18th annual Teen Volunteer Appreciation Award luncheon on Saturday, August 8, at the Rao Musunuru, M.D., Conference Center. The luncheon was to recognize the services of the many teens who volunteer to help at Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point.
This summer more than 100 teens ages 14 to 18 volunteered during the hospital’s summer program in a variety of hospital departments. During the ceremony the teens were recognized for the hours they served with pins, certificates, and letters commemorating their time in service to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point hospital’s patients.
Many of the students use their hours to apply for scholarships. At the awards ceremony Donna Owen, Manager of Volunteer Services, along with Elliot Lorenzi, president of the Volunteer Association, recognized those who had achieved various plateaus in service to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point and its patients.
When a volunteer reaches 100 hours they receive a special pin to commemorate the event. This year the following teen volunteers achieved pins for 100, 500, 1,000 and even 1,500 hours of service. Those who received these pins are:
1,500 hours: Meghan Hurley
1,000 hours: Steffany Contreras
500 hours: William Jordan
