The Southeast Georgia Health System Auxiliaries recently announced Elena "Lea" Taylor as the Brunswick Campus Volunteer of the Quarter and Pearl Sophia Stephen as the Camden Campus Volunteer of the Quarter during their respective quarterly Auxiliary luncheons.

A retired teacher, Lea Taylor has been a member of the Brunswick Campus Auxiliary for more than 18 years. She currently volunteers in the Emergency Care Center.

"Lea is one of our long-term, valued volunteers," says Kristin Doll, director of Volunteer Services. "She consistently serves others with a gentle smile and great compassion."

A Brunswick resident, Taylor previously volunteered for the American Red Cross. When not volunteering, she enjoys biking, walking, fishing, traveling and square dancing.

"I volunteer because I really enjoy helping people," says Taylor. "I taught for 31 years before I retired, and my goal is to reach 31 years as a volunteer!"

A Kingsland resident and member of the Auxiliary for just over a year, Pearl Sophia Stephen volunteers in the Camden Campus Gift Shop.

"Pearl’s big smile and helpful attitude are just two of her wonderful attributes that our Gift Shop customers experience," says Kristin Doll, director, Volunteer Services. "She always offers her assistance and suggestions to help customers find something special."

Stephen also volunteers with the Biology Club at the Camden Campus of College of Coastal Georgia. Her hobbies include reading, being outdoors, and cooking for company.

"I love volunteering in the Gift Shop," says Stephen. "I have been in retail since I was 16 years old, and love to help customers find something special. It’s all about making the customer happy!"

More than 300 volunteers currently enjoy sharing their time and talents to assist patients, visitors, and team members at the Southeast Georgia Health System Brunswick and Camden campuses, as well as the Senior Care Centers in Brunswick and St. Marys.
