WEST POINT, Miss.—The North Mississippi Medical Center-West Point staff has selected Keith White of Facility Operations as the hospital’s most recent Employee of the Quarter.
White joined the staff in November 2018. He previously served 17 years with West Point Fire Department and 11 years as fire chief for Golden Triangle Regional Airport.
A graduate of Sam Houston High School in Arlington, Texas, White attended Tarrant County College in Fort Worth.
“Keith is always cheerful, thorough and very detail-oriented,” a co-worker wrote in his nomination. “He seeks to make the rest of the team’s job easier by quietly carrying the load as much as possible.” Co-workers say White exhibits exceptional teamwork, is reliable, respects others, shows compassion and always produces quality work. Co-workers noted that he has created several tools to streamline work and save costs, and that he put forth extra effort during the recent winter storm to ensure a safe environment.
“Keith demonstrates excellent customer service in greeting, smiling and offering to help everyone he comes in contact with,” another nomination states. “He takes pride in all that he does, making sure that his work is done professionally and that all needs are met.”
“Keith is that good soul who will help do those tedious tasks that he may never get praise for in this world,” a co-worker wrote, “but those jobs and actions make a world of difference to others.”
White says the best part of his job is the people with whom he works. He and his wife, Jackie, have two sons, Chase and Nolan. The family attends Calvary Baptist Church in West Point.
