Money for Hospice

On June 9, Soroptimists International of Kingman held its annual installation of new officers and presentation of special gifts. New officers included Robin Jenkins, president; Becky Fawson, past president; Brenda Sumner, treasurer; Marie Carspecken, recording secretary; Beverly Mracek, corresponding secretary; and Deborah Liverence, vice president. During the presentation of special gifts, two Women's Opportunity Scholarships were awarded. Brenda Niel was awarded a $1,000 scholarship and Alecia (Bertha) Alatorre was awarded a $2,500 scholarship. Brenda requested that her scholarship be given to Alicia, because she felt Alicia's need was greater than her own. Upon hearing this, Krystal Burge of Desert de Oro Foods presented a personal check for $1,000 to Brenda in recognition of her generosity and spirit of excellence. Also during the presentations, a check in the amount of $20,000 was given to the KRMC Foundation Board for the Joan and Diana Hospice Home. Located at 812 Airway Ave., the hospice will provide services to those individuals who are dying from a terminal illness but do not have a caregiver, or live too far out of town to obtain hospice service. For more information about donating to this worthwhile project, contact Jamie Taylor, director of Development and Public Relations for Kingman Regional Medical Center, at (928) 757-0664.
