See Who is stepping up!

Michelle Suarez, Prosper Lincoln’s Developer for Early Childhood, presented Bryan Health with the Prosper Lincoln Step Up award.  Ellen Beans, Volunteers and Customer Care Director, and Jenny Sundberg, Senior Marketing Specialist, accepted the award.

Through the Prosper Lincoln early childhood focus area, Bryan Health staff learned that reading to a child for 15 minutes makes a positive difference in their development. Because of this, two Bryan Health Little Libraries have been created to encourage children and their families who are visiting the hospitals to take a free book and read each day.

These beautifully bright and playful libraries, located in Bryan East Campus and Bryan West Campus cafeterias, were commissioned by the Bryan Art Committee and painted by local artist Julia Kappenman. Each library depicts a different theme and is filled with books for a variety of ages of children.

Bryan Foundation purchased the first series of books to fill the libraries.  The Community can donate new books by contacting Bryan Health Volunteers and Customer Care at 402-481-3032. 

Suarez describes Bryan’s Project as an investment in the children of Lincoln that will pay dividends now and in the future. “When organizations step up to support young children, each according to their capacity, our children benefit,” she said.

This community-minded company is also stepping up to the Employment Skills focus area of Prosper Lincoln by working to illustrate career pathways for individuals to move from entry-level positions to career opportunities.
