Hello! Morristown ~ Hamblen County’s Favorite Community Magazine!

Mary Wallen receives the James Templin Volunteer of the Year Award. Mary has worked on costumes, props, painted set and stage, helped with striking set, hung posters to advertise, worked as an usher and helped with concessions.

Mary Kate (Wilburn) Wallen was born and raised in Grassy Fork, TN. Her parents J.D. and Brenda Wilburn still live there. Mary first found a love of the stage as a senior in 1990 at Cosby High school when she appeared as a postulate in The Sound of Music with the Newport Theatre Guild.

are seldom paid; “notVolunteers because they are worthless, but because they are PRICELESS!

Mary Graduated from WSCC in 1995 with her RN degree and now works at Morristown Hamblen and Jefferson Memorial Hospital’s Day Surgery and Endoscopy Lab Departments. “I love being a nurse and helping people who are sick or hurting,” she says. Mary is married to Troy Wallen, they reside here in Morristown with their 2 wonderful children Daniel age 13 and Hannah Grace age 10, and she is so happy to share the joy of theatre with them. After a 10 year hiatus from the stage she returned along with her daughter in an ensemble role in Encore’s production of Annie and there she fell in love with the Encore Family and has never left. Mary has done it all from being on stage to behind the scenes. She has been a stage manager, house manager, worked in box office, light board operator, back stage hand, and fly operator. Page 2

Through her love of children and fostering a love of theatre and the arts, Mary has helped with Library Days, worked on 3 of Encore’s Young Star Series Musicals and is the Organizational Manager for Lakeway Children’s Choir.  Her favorite role on stage has been Edith Ellington in First Baptist of Ivy Gap.  Mary is a member of the Encore’s Volunteer Club and is a Company Member for Encore. Each Year, one volunteer who has sacrificed their time and talents in unparalleled fashion, is recognized with the “James Templin Volunteer of the Year Award and Mary is the 2010 recipient. Mary was quoted as saying “I love all things related to the theatre. I have raised my kids backstage. I want them to have a love for the theatre as much as I do. I want them to know it is not just being on stage, or having the lead role that is important. Sometimes the stars of the show are never seen in a spotlight.” I will leave you with one of Mary’s favorite quotes Volunteers are seldom paid; not because they are worthless, but because they are PRICELESS!

Congratulation Mary on your well deserved honor ♥

FIRST LOVE on MAIN

new ministry of First Baptist Church First Love on Main, a new ministry of First Baptist Church is offering free dental services to the lower income residents of our community. The clinic is located at 225 W. Main Street in downtown Morristown next to the New Hope Recovery Center. The new ministry began as a vision of First Baptist Pastor, Dr. Dean Haun. He challenged the Church to give back to the community and to be the hands and feet of Jesus in expressing His love to the Morristown area.

“ We believe we will see many people come to know Christ through this ministry as we purposefully share the gospel. ” Pastor Haun told his congregation, “Whenever the Bible says Jesus was “moved with compassion” He always responded in some physical tangible way. It was never just an emotional feeling of sorrow or empathy. If we are going to strive to be like Him we must give and we must serve. We have no other option.” Pastor Haun shared with the Church his vision about having a place where lives could be touched and transformed by the love of Christ outside the walls of the church. The First Baptist members took those words and that challenge literally. A family within the Church bought the downtown building the clinic is using and donated it to the Church for use as a ministry center. The dentists offer their time and talents to help those who can not afford dental insurance or dental services. The Church welcomes other dentists or hygienists who would like to volunteer as well. Numerous volunteers and groups have come to the center to do repairs and improvements. “There have been so many volunteers who have given their time and abilities to this project,” Pastor Haun said. “We have had painters, plumbers, electricians, technicians, computer programmers, cleaners, landscapers, our Church youth group, groups from other churches… it has truly been amazing.”

When Baptist Hospital merged with St. Mary’s hospital a memorial fund of $2 million dollars was set up for Tennessee Medical Missions. First Baptist of Morristown is among the first recipients of these mission dollars. Dr. Haun had this to say about that grant, “We are so incredibly grateful for the Baptist of TN and the Tennessee Baptist convention for making available to us a grant that we might open our evangelistic dental clinic. “We believe we will see many people come to know Christ through this ministry as we purposefully share the gospel. “ In addition to dental services the new center will house the Christian Men and Women’s Job Corp assisting people in finding jobs and developing resumes and job skills. The center will also house the VITA (Volunteers In Tax Assistance) program for low income earners assisting with income tax forms and preparation. Legal Aid will also be using the building; letting the community know about the services they offer. The center hopes to add a Christian drug and alcohol recovery program in the future. Boni Frazee has been named as the Director of the new downtown ministry center. The hours of the center will be subject to the schedule of the dentists. ♥

Teaching

is a life-long citizen of Hamblen County.  Her early memories are of barefoot summers, harsh winters, and piano recitals in the spring.  Kim attended West Elementary and loves recalling special teachers like Kathryn Rader, Louise Gregory, Jim MacLeay, and Ms. Mullins in the library.  Lincoln Heights Middle School also provided Kim with a wonderful education and her high school years were spent right where she teaches now at West High School.  I love this place says Kim.  Special educators not only impressed upon her the importance of a sound education but also shared with her their passion for learning:  a passion that she shares today with her students.

After graduating from Morristown West High School, Kim spent three quarters at WSCC.  From there she transferred to East Tennessee State University and planned to study business.  After a difficult semester studying the wrong subject, she decided to transfer once again to the University of Tennessee where she received a degree in English Literature.  When she decided that teaching was what she really wanted to devote herself to, she went to Carson-Newman College as she worked to obtain her teaching certification.  Education has always been a part of my life, says Kim and she intends to continue learning and teaching others. Kim has now taught at Morristown West High School for ten years much to the delight of many West High students... Thank you Ms. Hall for your exceptional service to our students and community! ♥

We Offer The Most Advanced Alternative Treatments

What Our Clients say... ❤

I love receiving acupuncture treatments at kirk & Kirk Health Clinic because it has allowed me to continue to operate my business and actually to do some manual labor after not being to due to four failed lower back surgeries. I was having so much pain and discomfort that it was beginning to take it’s toil on my daily life. Thanks to the acupuncture I receive at Kirk & Kirk, I have found some relief. Acupuncture has also helped my stress level due to operating a daily business. Thank you Dr. Kirk and may God bless you and your staff. Kenny Porterfield

I was one of the world’s biggest doubters when it came to acupuncture. But when Duke University told me there was nothing left that could be done after my two back surgeries failed, that was an eye opener. The doctor at Duke said I could try acupuncture if I knew one that was certified and well known, so without hesitation, I went straight to Dr. Kirk as he was the best Chiropractor I have ever used. Now, in just four visits, the diabetes in my legs is under control, the burning, stinging and swelling in my feet and legs has reduced and has also helped calm the 24/7 pain in my low back. Acupuncture is the greatest thing, I love it! Thank you Dr. Kirk and your kind staff. Kirk & Kirk can help with many things, just give them a call they have really helped me so much. Eugene Eslinger

The Heart, Lung and Vascular System at MHHS Receives American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Program Certification

Morristown – Hamblen Healthcare System (MHHS) has been recognized for achievement by The American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR). The National Certification Committee announced Morristown-Hamblen Healthcare System’s Heart, Lung & Vascular Center has met the criteria for AACVPR Program Certification . “I want to commend the entire staff of the Heart, Lung and Vascular Center for their work in achieving this important certification, as part of our ongoing focus on quality patient care,” stated Richard Clark, President and CAO MHHS. Only a few hundred Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation out-patient programs in the United States have received this prestigious certification. MHHS is the only local program with this certification. “We are honored by the recognition, and feel it is another step in providing excellent patient care, every patient, every time,” added Tommy Bain, Director Heart, Lung and Vascular Center. The certification process has taken over a year, and included chart reviews and extensive data collection along with having the right technology in place. The MHH Foundation played a crucial role in the technology. Donations from the 2008 Heart Gala funded a technologically advanced monitoring system for specific use in the Cardio/ Pulmonary Rehab.

The goal of Program Certification and Recertification is to assure the facility is meeting the essential guidelines and standards of care. The purpose of the certification process is to: • Review programs against published standards and guidelines • Benchmark for providing best practice, program quality and improving patient outcomes • Provide an objective assessment of adherence to updated clinical standards and guidelines • Provide a systematic approach to quality care • Promote a culture of quality patient care • Provide patients with a benchmark to compare cardiovascular and pulmonary rehab programs for quality care • Provide best practice guidelines for quality standards. Each program is reviewed by the AACVPR National Certification Committee and the AACVPR Board of Directors for final approval. The committee then presents the hospital with a certificate. The mission of AACVPR is to reduce morbidity, mortality, and disability from cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases through education, prevention, rehabilitation, research, and aggressive disease management.

**Founded in 1985, the American Association of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation (AACVPR) is dedicated to the professional development of its members, through information, networking, and educational opportunities. Central to the mission is the improvement in the quality of life for patients and their families.
