NMMC Names Leech and Lewis to All Star Team for 2021
TUPELO, Miss.— Two Amory residents have been named to North Mississippi Medical Center’s All Star Team for 2021.
Dylan Leech, respiratory therapist at NMMC-Tupelo and Blakely Lewis, respiratory therapist at NMMC-Tupelo, were recognized by NMMC’s Stars Online program for outstanding performance throughout the year.
NMMC launched the Stars Online program in 1999 to recognize employees who exhibit extraordinary care and concern for their patients, customers and coworkers. The All Stars were honored at a virtual event on July 8.
Leech joined the NMMC staff in July 2014. He is a graduate of Hatley High School and received his associate degree from Itawamba Community College.
“The best part about my job is getting to help someone in need,” Leech said. “I love working in critical care and emergency room. Having the skills to save someone that cannot breathe is a wonderful feeling. I love interacting with patients and family members.”
Lewis joined the NMMC staff in 2010. She is a graduate of Aberdeen High School and earned her associate degree from Itawamba Community College.
“One of the most rewarding aspects of my job is that I see people in their most vulnerable times, and I am able to provide comfort, compassion and my specific skill set,” Lewis said. “I am blessed because I know that I have played an important role in the lives of my patients and their families.”
She and her husband, Matthew, have a daughter – Kennedy Claire. They attend Meadowood Baptist Church in Amory.
