Caring Today For Tomorrow

Becoming part of the Stillwater Medical Center Foundation's Board of Directors was more than just a personal decision--it was a family matter. Why? It's simple. A community needs a quality hospital--not only for its current members, but for those who will come to or are growing up in Stillwater. Healthcare is very important to Amy and me; as it is to parents throughout our community. In addition to quality physicians, we want a great hospital with a caring staff--and doors that are open 24/7. The Foundation is working to grow our endowed funds to reach $1 million within the next 18 months, a big step in securing the future health of Stillwater and surrounding communities. I have no doubt that we can reach that goal. However, as we look ahead and plan for the future, we can't overlook the needs of today. Since 1996, Stillwater Medical Center has reached out to the community through the Drive-thru Flu Shot program. Since 2006, proceeds from our annual "Tin Cup Golf Classic" have benefited the drive-thru. I hope you will consider signing up to be part of the 2010 Classic. Corporate sponsors find their name associated with one of the most successful and bestknown healthcare events in our area. We're also looking for players to come out and share a great day on the greens, teeing-up for a great cause. Everyone can make an impact by supporting the flu shot program, and you should--because family matters.

SMC Foundation President Cade Crawford enjoys time on the greens with son Dawson. Dawson hit some great putts; dad thinks he's found a future teammate.

Nursing Scholarship Honors Mother's Lifetime of Caring

Regardless of whom Mary Mae Hickey Randall was working with, her zest seemed to attract others to the cause she advocated. Thankfully, for most of her life that cause was nursing. After graduating from St. Anthony's School of Nursing and St. Mary's College, she spent several years as a nurse at hospitals across the United States. In 1970, she began her career as a Nurse Educator with the Moore-Norman Vo-Tech Practical Nursing Program, later becoming Assistant State Director of Health Occupations for the Oklahoma Department of Vocational and Technical Education. In 1982, she became the State Director of Health Occupations, retiring in that capacity in 1991. She truly left an imprint on Oklahoma's statewide vocational health occupations education programs. After Mrs. Randall passed away, her daughter, Mary Teresa, approached the SMC Foundation about establishing a scholarship for nurses in memory of her mother. Over the course of 3 years, Mary Teresa provided donations and fully endowed a scholarship fund. The scholarship created assists established Stillwater Medical Center employees who are furthering their education by attending nursing school or advancing their nursing education.

A Father Follows in His Daughter's Footsteps

Mary Teresa Randall was born into a military family in Frankfurt/Main, Germany. The daughter of Thomas Richard and Mary Mae Randall, her primary education included schools around the world. She attended the University of Oklahoma and received her bachelor's, as well as several master's degrees. She came to Stillwater Medical Center as a pharmacist and worked here for more than 25 years, before she passed away in January 2009. Thomas Randall, as he worked to settle matters with his daughter's estate, provided additional funds to benefit the Mary Mae Hickey Randall Nursing Scholarship. He then decided to follow in his daughter's footsteps and establish a scholarship through the SMC Foundation. "With a donation of $268,000, Mr. Thomas Randall has impacted the pharmacy department in a way that will benefit the hospital for many years to come. His endowment can make a difference not only in the education of SMC pharmacy staff, but also in the equipment and technology needs for the pharmacy," Cade Crawford, Foundation President, announced recently.

Terri Cole, RPh, and Bill Arrington, RPh, Director.

"You never had to wonder where he stood on an issue, or how he felt about something; he was not a shy man," Dee Richardson recently spoke about her husband, the late Dr. Jesse F. Richardson. The couple shared over 50 years of married life, as well as careers in the medical field. Dee was a physical therapist, Dr. Richardson specialized in orthopedic surgery. Dee recently provided an endowment gift to establish the Jesse F. Richardson, M.D. Scholarship. The scholarship will benefit established SMC employees in the medical imaging department.

Endowments: What You Need To Know

An endowment is a fund that is restricted. Only the interest from the fund can be spent, not the principal that anchors the endowment. Usually, only a portion of the interest or earnings from the endowment are spent on an annual basis in order to assure that the original funds will grow over time. Endowments assure stability, as their very existence speaks to the idea "we plan to be around for a long time." Stillwater Medical Center as well as the SMC Foundation have a long history in our community. Your participation, by giving to an endowment fund, makes you a partner with the SMC Foundation in securing the future of our community hospital. Call today to talk with Teresa Hopkins, Executive Director of the SMC Foundation, to see how your interest in creating or building on an endowment fund can be met; 405-742-5387. You may also e-mail her at [email protected]

Lucille Lake Burris taught for many years--mostly in Yale, OK. She also was a great supporter to the SMC Foundation. Having lived with juvenile rheumatoid arthritis for a majority of her life, she became well acquainted with the medical community. Lucille started an endowed nursing scholarship. She also provided in her estate planning that a percentage of her bequest create two additional endowment funds: one for home health services and the other for rehab nursing care. Mrs. Burris felt very strongly about giving to benefit the hospital. She often felt that people didn't give because they couldn't give a large donation. "You don't have to be rich to start a scholarship or an endowment," she would say. Her biggest hope was that the example of a simple school teacher would encourage others to give as well.
