A 'National Nurses Week' celebration at Nacogdoches Medical Center featured the naming of this year's outstanding nursing employee. The honor goes to Tanya Spivey. She's not a nurse, but administrative assistant for the 300 nurses on staff.

Spivey's peers selected her because of all the support she provides. "My philosophy is to make a difference in someone's life whether it's an actual patient or whether it's an employee here. That's my goal to make a difference in somebody's life each day," said Spivey.

Spivey made a difference in the lives of cancer patients. Her award as outstanding nurse is a $500 for the charity of her choice. Spivey chose the American Cancer Society, a tribute to her father who died from the disease.
