The GRACE Family honored our Clinic Nurse Manager Shirley Roberts with a surprise parade for her recognition as one of the Great 100 Nurses of Dallas-Fort Worth.
The Great 100 Nurses list raises awareness of the contributions of nurses to patient care, research, leadership, education and community service of more than 50,000 nurses practicing in the DFW area. In addition, the list builds the image of nursing through positive reinforcement of the profession as a scientific art and the recognition of those who exemplify excellence.
A huge group of well-wishers including volunteers, friends, family, GRACE board members, and even the Grapevine Police and Fire Departments lined the streets and cheered as Nurse Shirley drove by in a beautiful car that was loaned to us by Park Place Lexus Grapevine for the occasion.
After the parade, everyone attended a party thrown in honor of Shirley and watched the Great 100 Nurses virtual award presentation.
“Nursing is my passion, I can’t tell you how much this award and this surprise means to me,” Shirley said to those in attendance.
One of the only non-profit organizations on the list, the GRACE Community Clinic serves as the primary healthcare facility for nearly 1,000 patients who are treated by top health professionals that serve over 3,500 hours annually.
Congratulations Nurse Shirley!
