Volunteer Receives Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award

November 16, 2011

Hudson, FL – Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point has announced that Corinne (Corky) Zander was the proud recipient of the Presidential Lifetime Achievement Award. The award comes from the office of the President of the United States. It was instituted to acknowledge the outstanding achievements of volunteers and volunteering throughout the nation. The recipient receives the “President’s Call to Service Award Certificate,” a letter of congratulations from President Obama, and a beautiful pin commemorating this event. In order to receive this award an individual must have volunteered for a minimum of 15 years and have logged in over 7,500 hours of service.

Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point’s recipient, Corky Zander, began volunteering at the hospital July 1996, and has logged in over 21,000 hours of service. Corky is the Co-Chairman of the Gift Shop and is respected and loved by her peers, the staff and everyone who meets her. She always greets everyone with a smile and a kind word. If concerned family members come in the Gift Shop she always has time to comfort them. That concern for others comes from her lifelong career as a nurse.  She is the first to tell visitors to the shop what an excellent hospital we are. She is the glue that has kept the Gift Shop ladies together and the shop running smoothly during all the changes that have taken place over the years.  Corky is an asset to the volunteer organization, the community and to Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point.
