The Scotland County Hospital (SCH) Employee Committee in Memphis recognized employees for their years of service with the organization and awarded service pins this month during National Hospital Week.
There are several employees at SCH that have been loyal to the organization for multiple decades and received service pins this year. At the top of that list, working 40 years is Tammy Newland (Business Office) and Brenda Prather (Administrative Assistant) with 35 years of service.
Tammy Newland is a native of Downing and began her career with the hospital in 1980 in the Patient Accounts Department. She then moved into the position of Personnel Assistant and Payroll Clerk. In 1988 she assumed the position she currently holds as Accounting Supervisor. In this position she oversees Accounts Payable, General Ledger entries, Pay Roll, and assists with Human Resources as it relates to these areas. Tammy and her husband, Rodney, live in Downing and they have 2 children, 4 grandchildren and one great grandchild.
Brenda Prather, a native of Scotland County, started her career with the organization in September of 1970. She left the organization for a few years to raise her children and returned in November of 1985. In the 90’s she worked as an Administrative Assistant role with the CEO and Board of Directors, along with becoming the Lifeline Program Manager about that same time. She continues in those roles. Although Brenda joined the organization in 1970, her continuous length of service is calculated from 1985. Brenda and her husband, Stan, live on the family farm west of Memphis and have 2 children and 2 grandchildren.
