The Blood Center of East Texas recently honored our own Marilyn Wright, cafeteria supervisor, with a very special award. The Bill T. Teague Award is given to an individual who “epitomizes the spirit of Commit for Life…someone who helps save... lives and inspires others to do the same. “ Marilyn has been Memorial’s blood drive chairman for over 15 years and just last year collected 182 life-saving blood products through her blood drives. Marilyn also serves on the blood center’s Real World Educational Workshop, educating high school blood drive groups on the importance of Commit for Life. Way to go Marilyn. We’re so proud of you!
