Celebrating our people

Memorial employees have consistently risen to challenges since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Everyone has done so much and we are all in this together! Some of you have had to work on campus while others have worked from home. People have had to learn new ways of working and navigate the world of Webex meetings. Whatever this year has looked like for you, we would like to hear about it. Please click on the tabs above for information on how to submit and commemorate this year. This is a wonderful opportunity to highlight the exceptional people and teams that have defined the Memorial community during this time in our history.
