TINA KETCHOPOLOS RESPONDS TO HER BEST GMG PR PERSON OF THE YEAR AWARD

Dear Joey:

I want you to know how honored I am to be selected PR Person of the Year!

You know that GMG is my favorite blog – it is not only entertaining, but informative and educational! I appreciate the many health programs and screenings you post for us.

I feel like I have the best job in City.  I work at a wonderful hospital with amazing employees.  On Friday,

Cindy Cafasso Donaldson and her assistant, Deb Sacco, who I enjoy working with so much, told me to check GMG and that is when I saw the announcement.  What a way to begin your day! 

The co-workers I work with are incredible.  We have excellent doctors, nurses and support staff.

They are skilled and professional – but in addition, they are compassionate and caring and this is equally

important.  I feel honored to call these individuals my co-workers and  friends.  I wish I could name every department and

every employee as they deserve recognition as well.  Addison Gilbert Hospital is striving because of their good care and work.

So it is always a pleasure to share with you programming that our staff are conducting.

My job also allows me to work with so many agencies and other non-profits within the City – I have met so many wonderful people at meetings and working on projects together – this is one of the highlights of my job.

My boss Gerald MacKillop is from Gloucester and of course I told him I was bringing you to my next review!  I told him that when he called to congratulate me.

Please know that you made my day by your kindness and this wonderful honor; I am extremely grateful.

I have to go now, I have about four more notices to send you!

Gratefully and in friendship,

Tina

    With great sadness I read of the death of Tina. What will I do without her? Tina always supplied me with speakers and sent out all the notices for our Gloucester Stroke Club. When she could not find a speaker, she presented the program herself. Always so cheerful and her great desire to serve others. I believe God gives us angels and Tina was certainly one of them. Rest in Peace Tina for a Life so Well Lived. God Bless You. Blessings from me and the Gloucester Stroke Club. Virginia McKinnon
