WORTHINGTON — A contingent of young Tae Kwon Do students recently did their part to help hungry people in their community. Worthington’s Champion Tae Kwon Do students received top honors among 13 participating Lee’s Tae Kwon Do Association gyms in this spring’s annual food drive event. As a result, those students were able to bring home what’s known as The Big Bean Trophy from a Marshall tournament last months in recognition of their charitable efforts.
WORTHINGTON — To say technology has changed Julie Morphew’s job at Sanford Worthington Medical Center would be a gross understatement. Morphew, who is employed as a release of information technician at SWMC, is marking 40 years of employment with the hospital this year. She originally came on board as a lab secretary, and it was a time at which medical records were organized much differently than they are today.
WORTHINGTON — Growing up on a farm near St. Kilian, Carol Hieronimus may have been destined to work in health care. “I grew up in a home where my parents took care of their parents,” Hieronimus said earlier this week at Sanford Worthington Clinic, where she works as an LPN. “I was around older people a lot, and I think that’s kind of what triggered me to choose my career.”
WORTHINGTON — Donkey basketball is returning to Worthington next week for an encore performance. The second annual King Turkey Day Donkey Basketball Fundraiser event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Thursday (doors open at 6 p.m.) at Worthington High School. The 2017 version of the event was so successful, KTD board member Susanne Murphy said, that it was an easy decision to bring the unique brand of hoops for a second go-round.
WORTHINGTON — A yearly celebration honoring the women of the Worthington area will take place next Monday night. The 46th annual Salute to Women Banquet will take place beginning with a 5:30 p.m. social at Round Lake Vineyards & Winery, 30124 Minnesota 264. A 6 p.m. meal will be catered by Hi-Lo Catering, and entertainment in the form of a presentation by Willow Sweeney is scheduled for 7 p.m.
WORTHINGTON — For many in the medical field, Sanford Worthington represents a wide range of outstanding employment opportunities. That’s true for people who grew up far from Worthington, as well as folks come from its backyard. A number of Sanford Worthington employees, in fact, were raised in Worthington or nearby communities, then subsequently made the decision to return home for a career with Sanford.
EDGERTON — It wasn’t all that long ago that Patti Van Essen spent a majority of her time helping her husband, Rod, on their rural Edgerton farm. To say she’s a bit busier now would be no small understatement. She’s now the owner of Tally Ho Koffie and the Gray Wolf Saloon, located next to each other in Edgerton’s downtown.
WORTHINGTON — In 2006, the first annual Hospice Cottage Fundraiser banquet was hosted at American Reformed Church. It was a bit smaller in scale than it is today, as event co-chairperson Susanne Murphy recalls.
SIBLEY, Iowa — Since his arrival at Sibley-Ocheyedan High School in the fall of 2000, hundreds of students have passed through the doors of Peter Carlson’s band room.
FULDA — It will be 20 years ago this August that Beth Cuperus came on board to work at Fulda Memorial Library. Little did she expect that she would be appointed as the library’s director a short time later, and still be in that post today. Cuperus, originally from Lead, S.D., grew up in the Black Hills before moving to southwest Minnesota for college.
