The jobs of those caring for us are more challenging than ever, and for none more so than nurses, the health care professionals on the front line every day. Nurses are the heart of health care. During National Nurses Week, May 6-12, The Times and Democrat, along with sponsors, is honoring 10 outstanding nurses selected by a panel of judges from nominations received from readers. We’re also offering a special tribute to a deceased nurse whose service included years caring for those in jail at the Orangeburg County Detention Center, Arnita Frazier. The Presenting Sponsors are the Regional Medical Center and Claflin University. The Title Sponsor is Orangeburg-Calhoun Technical College. The Supporting Sponsors are Grove Park Hospice and The Oaks. The Floral Sponsor is The Garden Gate Florist.
