Randy Todd Receives 2017 Roberson Award

 

Randy Todd was presented with the twenty-ninth annual Fred H. Roberson Award on Thursday, June 22 at Cookeville Regional Medical Center’s monthly board of trustees meeting.  CRMC CEO Paul Korth made the presentation, citing Todd’s commitment and loyalty to the hospital, the betterment of healthcare in the community and his many years of dedication to the Quit for Life tobacco cessation class. 

Todd helped found the Quit for Life tobacco cessation class in 1992. For the past 25 years, he has been facilitating weekly meetings at the hospital as a volunteer. The class provides education and support for those looking to quit smoking, dipping or chewing tobacco.  He added a youth class to help teens as well. Todd has mentored hundreds, if not thousands, of people, in their effort to have a healthier lifestyle without tobacco. His class also serves as a resource for Cookeville Regional Medical Center.

The Roberson Award is named for Mr. Fred Roberson who served on the hospitals’ Board of Trustees for twenty-seven years.  The award is presented annually to the individual who best exemplifies the same dedicated and loyal service to Cookeville Regional Medical Center and its patients as was demonstrated by Mr. Roberson.  Previous recipients have been Dr. Thurman Shipley, H.S.
