Last year, we introduced our Staff Photo Competition. This competition allowed our staff to showcase the work they did, the locations they visited, as well as their professional and personal achievements. For our staff members, no two workdays are alike, so we received a wide range of unique photos!
Following last year’s success, we decided to toughen the competition. Some months will now have photo themes. To win a themed month, a photo should match the theme! For other months, we will accept photos of all subject matter.
Each month, one photo is chosen as the winner. Additional photo(s) are also highlighted as honorable mentions. Since the participants could submit any photo they wanted this month, we saw many creative submissions!
Submission Winner: Martha Jane (MJ) Hooper
In May 2023, Martha Jane (MJ) Hooper donated stem cells for someone with a blood disease. The picture above shows MJ holding the 11 million stem cells that she donated that day.
MJ is a senior at the University of Tennessee at Martin and is the Marketing and Communications intern at LIS.
Honorable Mention: AJ Maxwell
Last month, some of our military personnel were at Camp Shelby in Mississippi. There they trained with their fellow soldiers to develop and sustain the skills necessary to deploy. Pictured left to right is Travis Pather, AJ Maxwell, Mike Ilko, and Nick Haberman.
LIS is proud to support our veterans because of the value, devotion, and leadership they bring to our team.
