Curry Wins Nursing Support Award
TUPELO, Mississippi—North Mississippi Medical Center recently presented Lori Curry of 3 Central with the Excellence in Nursing Support Award during National Nurses Week.
Curry has served as a certified nursing assistant, monitor technician and unit coordinator on 3 Central since 2014.
“During the pandemic, nurses as well as nursing assistants are worn out and drained. Lori Curry has been here during her regular schedule and has even picked up extra shifts to help her floor and other floors that are low with staff,” a coworker wrote in her nomination. “During the snowstorm in 2021 Lori chose to stay at a hotel leaving her two children home with her mother so her floor wouldn't be without a nursing assistant.
“Lori’s experience and attention to detail and orders puts her a step above the rest,” another wrote. “Lori shows the utmost professionalism always. Lori performs her job duties (and then some) with such grace and humility and deserves recognition.”
A 2001 graduate of Calhoun County High School, Curry completed her CNA training at Holmes Community College and phlebotomy training at Itawamba Community College. She and her husband, Forlando, have two children—Harmony and Shane.
