Olivet student volunteers win Presence hospital Inspire Award
Olivet Nazarene University student volunteers recently won the Inspire Award from Presence St. Mary’s Hospital, which honors those who embody the hospital’s values of honesty, oneness, people and excellence.
“We are fortunate to have such a quality health care partner as Presence St. Mary’s Hospital,” Woody Webb, Olivet vice president for student development, said, according to a release from the school. “It means so much when a community organization recognizes the efforts and commitment of our students.”
Webb accepted the award with Olivet Student Body President Kaleb Miller on behalf of the school’s students. The hospital's community board selected the Olivet students for this year’s award in recognition of their inspirational work. According to the university’s release, more than 1,400 of its students volunteer in various initiatives spread out over 20 unique volunteer groups.
“Each of us has something to offer in building the kingdom of God,” PSMH President Chris Shride, an Olivet alumni, said, according to the release. “The best places to do this are in our own homes, in our own relationships and in our own communities. Volunteering the way you do not only serves the Lord, but truly and deeply blesses the lives of those who prosper and grow as a result of your selflessness.”
