Rowan roundup: Director named for Lake Norman surgical centers

MOORESVILLE ó Brenda Burk, a registered nurse, has been named director of Lake Norman Regional Medical Center’s Endoscopy and Ambulatory Surgical Centers.
Burk has more than 20 years of experience in surgical settings and process improvements. For the past two years, she has held various positions in the hospital’s Surgical Services Department. During the past six months as clinical nurse educator and assistant director of the Surgical Services Department, she instituted a variety of innovative and cost reducing plans for improvements within the department.
Also this past week, employees at the hospital showed their Halloween spirit in a departmental pumpkin-carving contest.
The artistic talents of the Imaging Department captured first place. Judges were Mike Cowling, chief executive officer; Brady Dubois, assistant administrator; and Robert Assante, nutrition services director.
UPS driver honored
Reginald Poplin, a package car driver for UPS, was recently recognized by the company for completing 30 years without an accident.
Poplin works out of the facility located at 1301 Old Concord Road in Salisbury. He presently provides service in the Salisbury area.
Manager Deborah Zabala presented Poplin the 30-year safe driving award, recognizing his achievement.
Poplin lives in Albemarle.
Harvest Feast drive
Harris Teeter is kicking off its annual Harvest Feast Food Drive by giving shoppers a chance to help stock shelves of local food banks in time for the holidays.
Last year, Harris Teeter and its shoppers donated more than $156,000 in gift cards to food bank partners. In addition, the company hosts three Harvest Feast dinners and plans to serve more than 15,000 individuals a free Thanksgiving meal this year.
Harris Teeter shoppers can purchase $5 and $20 Harvest Feast donation cards when they check out. The cards will be distributed to food bank partners in the amount raised in their service area. Food bank partners use the gift cards to purchase items when they need them.
If a shopper prefers to purchase and donate nonperishable products, collection bins will be placed at the entrance of stores. All Harris Teeter stores will participate in the Harvest Feast Food Drive, and the items donated will stay in a store’s community, benefiting food banks all over the east coast and in the mid-atlantic region.
