The volunteer of the month for August is one of our favorite cart drivers, Stanley French. Stan has been volunteering at KRMC for over six years and has given more than six hundred hours of his time to KRMC.
Stan was born and raised in Bakersfield, California. After completing school, he went into the Air Force for four years. After he left the Air Force, he began to work for Montgomery Ward, where he would spend the next 36 years working in the service and repair department. He tried to retire once but ended up going back to work part time for something to do until the store closed for good.
After he fully retired, Stan and his wife Sharon moved to Kingman. The Frenchâ€™s opted to move to Kingman because Bakersfield had got too big and the pollution too bad. Kingman offered similar weather with nicer people, and the small town feel they had growing up.
The KRMC PR department has donated everything you need for the picnic (except the food and ants) and wrapped it up into a drawing. Tickets are $5 each and will be on sale every Friday in the cafeteria from 11 to 1 from June 11th through July 16th. The winning ticket will be pulled at the KRMC Maternity Fair on Saturday, July 17th. Included in the prizes: a Jamis bicycle; a beautiful handmade quilt; a tackle box; a boom box; and two water bottles.
All during Hospital Week, KRMC employees had the chance to cast votes for their, ahem, favorite senior administrators to get slimed â€” covered head-to-toe in party string.
The votes came in this morning, and it was Ryan Kennedy, KRMC COO, who was selected for the coveted role. Video after the jumpâ€¦
