LAUREL, MS (WDAM) -

Dozens of volunteers who serve South Central Regional Medical Center were honored Tuesday.

A ceremony at South Central Place featured several awards for volunteers.

They included the Mississippi Commission for Volunteer Service Award and the Bronze Volunteer Service Award from the Office of the President of the United States.   

Laurel mayor Johnny Magee presented a proclamation for National Volunteer Week and Governor Phil Bryant sent a video message thanking the volunteers for all they do.

"These are volunteers across the board, from the time you walk into the hospital," said Bonnie Smith, volunteer coordinator for South Central Regional Medial Center. "There's a volunteer at the information desk, there's a volunteer in Surgery Waiting, we also use volunteers for Comfort Care Hospice."    

"I found out that I get a lot more than I give," said volunteer Nancy Jernigan. "It's a lot of fun to feel like you're helping someone or talking to them in their time of need."

The event honored about 70 volunteers.

    Following a school-record 55 wins and run that ended in an 8-7 loss in the NJCAA national championship, Jones County Junior College softball is eager to open the 2018 season on February 3. Coming that close to the school’s first national title serves as motivation enough for the Lady Bobcats. Regardless, expectations are always high for coach Chris Robinson’s teams – JCJC is a combined 105-12 the last two seasons.
