JIM WARD, after accumulating
more than 1300 volunteer hours since 2007, was named Volunteer of the Year at
Duke Raleigh Hospital. Jim is a "Care Ambassador," which means he delivers
newspapers and flowers to all the patients, helps them and their visitors
navigate the complicated hospital campus, and even sings "Happy Birthday" to
them if they happen to be hospitalized on their special day. Congratulations to
Jim on this well-deserved honor!
