Verna McAlexander honored at banquet
Verna Rogers McAlexander of Holly Springs was inducted into the Mississippi School Nurse Association Hall of Fame at a banquet held on April 16.
Among those attending were Kenny and Diane Dickerson, Bobby and Martha McAlexander, Larry and Farrah McAlexander, Doug and Lyla McAlexander, Brenda Bailey and children Logan, Bailey and Brooke Lambert; Emmily Hurdle, school nurse for Marshall County, with her lovely daughter Valerie, and Sue Thomas.
McAlexander’s daughter Brenda was asked to introduce her mother and gave a wonderful life history and her mother’s ventures as a registered nurse. Brenda worked with her mother for 17 years in the school district and also worked alongside her at the Marshall County Hospital.
The school nurse association presented McAlexander a crystal clock and her five children presented her with a bouquet of red roses.
McAlexander’s husband Bob died in 1990. She has 13 grandchildren and 12-1/2 great-grandchildren. She is very active in the Holly Springs Pilot Club and the Town and Country Garden Club and works up many of the blood drives in North Mississippi. She is a member of Red Banks Baptist Church, enjoys doing yard work and still keeps the family of 43-1/2 going.
She has worked under three different Marshall County School superintendents and retired in 2007.
