On Thursday, November 9, from 2 – 3:30 p.m., there will be a celebration at the JRMC School of Nursing in honor of Kathy’s career. JRMC is asking those who have been influenced by Kathy to send in a card recording their best wishes and fond memories for her. Please call 870-541-7554 and request the official card, which will be mailed to you. Then, mail the card back before November 2 or simply drop it off at the school prior to the event on November 9.
