NMMC Presents BEE Award to Foster
TUPELO, Miss.—Case manager Kearsee Foster recently received North Mississippi Medical Center’s BEE (Beyond Exceptional Expectations) Award for December.
“Kearsee got a phone call from the pharmacy that a patient who had just been discharged was there needing medications,” wrote a coworker who nominated Foster for the award. “Kearsee went above and beyond and paid for his medications out of her own pocket.” When she found out he was hungry, she made sure he got food to eat.
“Kearsee is more than extraordinary, she is simply amazing and has the kindest heart,” her nomination states. A Tupelo resident, Foster graduated from Shannon High School in 2007. She earned an associate degree in psychology from Northeast Mississippi Community College in Booneville, a bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of Southern Mississippi and a master’s degree from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. She joined the NMMC staff in 2015.
She received a certificate, a BEE Award pin, a bouquet donated by Bishop’s Flower Shop and a cake. The BEE Award is given to a deserving caregiver each month at NMMC. For more information, call (662) 377-3431 or email BEEAwards@nmhs.net.
