Excerpted from Serrano’s nomination form: “Serrano strives every day to make working at TTUHSC a rewarding experience for her and other employees and she strives to make coming to a physician appointment as pleasant as possible for all patients. On one occasion she was particularly helpful to a family. She noted that both the mother and father of a child were visually impaired. The child was the parent’s lifeline by being their eyes. The family had to arrive at an appointment at the hospital very early in the morning on public transportation. Serrano arranged to have the family picked up and brought to the hospital.”
