We know that our local nurses work hard and we want to celebrate them. That's why we partnered with Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union to salute our local nurses.

We asked you to tell us about the nurses in your life and your responses were phenomenal! We will be highlighting some of those entries here and on air and one lucky nurse will win an overnight stay at the French Lick Springs Resort.

Let's meet two of our nurses:

Jamie Mercer

Jamie was nominated by Jarid Shofstall. Jamie works at St. Vincent Ascension in Evansville and according to Jarid, Jamie is a former candy striper. Jarid writes,

Jaimie was a candy striper in high school, VP of her school’s health organization, and a star pupil at USI. She has been a nurse for over a decade now. She has worked in oncology, triage, infectious disease, orthopedics, and more! She is currently a nurse practitioner for St. Vincent Ascension. She is one of the hardest working, positive energy people I know...

Jamie, thank you for all you do!

Kellie Baugh

Kellie was nominated by her son, Trenton Stone. Kellie works at Cypress Grove Rehabilitation Center in the Covid wing and according to Trenton, Kellie works hard, often 80+ hours a week. Trenton writes,

Kellie is my mother. Since the start and long before COVID, she busts her butt every night 12 hours a night. Usually working 80+ hours a week. She moved to the COVID unit once the virus started to spread through the facility, risking her life to care for the elderly patients. I can’t think of anyone more deserving of a much needed break than her.

Kellie, thank you for all you do!

 

Jamie & Kellie are both now in the running to win an overnight stay at the French Lick Springs Resort thanks to Diamond Valley Federal Credit Union. Today and every day we are grateful for the hardworking nurses in our community!

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
