• Occupation: Director of radiology, Citizens Medical Center
• Hometown: Victoria
Why honored: My everyday hero is Nancy Kopecky, the director of radiology at Citizens Medical Center. She is one of the most compassionate, caring, understanding people when it comes to a patient being claustrophobic and having to have an MRI (magnetic resonance imaging). She will calm your nerves, address your needs, alert her staff and stay with you until the process is finished. I would not have been able to do it without her love for her job and the people she cares for. Thanks, Nancy! You are one in a million. Citizens Medical Center should be so proud to have you.
