Cornucopia: Business Associate 2016

  Globe Chapter of the American Business Women’s association held its annual Business Associate meeting a few weeks ago at a Masquerade Ball at the Shilo Inn, and SANDA WILLIAMS was named the chapter’s Business Associate for 2016.  Since 1962 – when Ray Hewitt received the first award – the Associate of the Year has been chosen from letters written by members that list a nominee’s qualifications.   Then a selected panel of judges makes the final choice.

  After leaving her hometown in Panama and living in Brooklyn, New York, Sandra got to Texas as fast as she could. And all along the way she worked and studied to excel in her nursing career, and she has always found time to participate in local and community activities.  Her official title at Carl R. Darnell Hospital is Supervisory Nurse, Health Promotion section.  She worked 18 years as a clinical nurse in the Communicable Disease & Prevention Medicine Clinic.  Sandra has her Masters of Science in Nursing and, after some additional research, she will soon earn her PhD in Nursing and a PhD in Higher Education.  In 2015, she was selected as a Top Ten Business Woman for National ABWA, and she’s in the Central Texas Area Council Hall of Fame under the category of medicine.  She’s also Woman of the Year for Globe, a member of Sigma Theta Tau Honor Society of Nursing, a member of Toastmasters…and the list goes on.

  Congratulations to Sandra on another well deserved accolade.        

  Some of the chapter’s previous associates include:  Dr. Charles Patterson, Ray Lott, Buddy Menking, Dr.Wayne Pundt, Chuck Reinhardt, Lisa Youngblood, Tommy Joe Mills, Butch Menking, Bobby Davis, Stan and Elaine Passman, Amy Millsap, Robert Bass, Raymond Perez, Dick Atkinson, and Linda Garvin.

  Serina Jones and her committee made all the arrangements for the very successful Masquerade Ball.   

  VIVIAN MARSCHIK, president of the Friends of the Steward C. Meyers Harker Heights Library, announced that the Friends netted just over fifteen hundred dollars at its semi-annual book sale the end of April.  The turnout was great and satisfied customers left with bags full of books that will give them many hours of enjoyment. The money raised from the sale will go mostly for children programs, or to buy a special item for the library not normally covered in its regular budget.  Thanks to all those who helped make the sale a great success. And be on the look out for the next sale, which will probably be sometime in October.  

  Congratulations to a few couples that will celebrate their wedding anniversary in May. PETE and ARLYS HILLIARD were married on May 5, 2001, so it’s 15 years for the Hilliards.  They were married at the Immanuel Lutheran Church when it was still located in Killeen.  And BILL and CAROLYN COX were married 57 years ago on May 8, in LaGrange.       

  Bragging news just received this morning:  Great-grandson COLTON COOPER was honored as Self-discipline Student for May for the entire school – kindergarten through fifth grade – of the Stonehouse Elementary School in Williamsburg, Virginia.  Colton, who turned six last December, is a kindergarten student.  He received a letter of commendation from the principal and his picture is on display at the school entrance, along with other students who received awards in different categories. Colton and his parents, Cade and Sheena Cooper, are also sharing bragging rights.  Maybe little brother, two-year-old Corbin, can get in on some of this “self-discipline stuff.”
