Thank you John for bringing a great celebration to BBC.
Today we recognize one of our longtime leaders John Fear for respecting all people, raising the bar, teamwork, and commitment to community.
On Monday, January 16, BBC hosted a beautiful community celebration for Martin Luther King Day. We engaged about 125 members from our hospital family and across the community in song, dance, and spoken word that highlighted the legacy of Dr. King – and the lesson and challenge he left for all of us.
What you likely did not know is that the organization and leadership for this event was provided by John Fear. It was John who proposed and encouraged hosting an MLK event. It was his organizational and planning skills that made it a reality. And it was the relationships and goodwill that John has built with others that helped connect Bronson Diversity & Inclusion, Pastoral Care, Administration, Dietary, EVS, our guest speaker Beatrice Orns (Center for Learning), and several talented community members – into a meaningful celebration. (Let’s not forget that a John Fear event is also known for great food – we saw that again as well!)
Thank you John for bringing a great celebration to BBC. And thanks to all across Bronson who are leading our work in becoming a community that celebrates inclusion and diversity.
