The four pillars of National Honor Society are scholarship, leadership, service and character. This year, in order to contribute to their service pillar, members of the Rock Hills Chapter decided to raise awareness for those less fortunate and give back to their community!

A Coat Drive ran from Nov. 1 through Nov. 26. Members decided to set a goal of 100 coats and 50 hats, gloves and scarfs. However, in that short amount of time their hopes and goals for the Coat Drive were far exceeded. The final total resulted in 153 coats and 80 hats, gloves and scarfs.

All donations were taken to the Jewell County Parish Office approved to increase the acute rates to the GPHA average. It was decided to revisit the room rates every December to avoid this problem in the future.

Ruthstrom checked with the local banks on the interest rate for the new pharmacy system. The decision on the method of payment is still undecided: State Exchange 4.5 percent; Guaranty State 4.18 percent; Central National 5.5 percent.

Physicians and mid-level contracts were discussed. McKimmy is in discussion with Sunflower and Search Associates

Trustees approved to pay all the property taxes that are due.

Survey pay schedule information on LPNs was discussed.
