In Recognition of Jeannette Glenn

Thursday, February 10th, 2011

To our McLeod Family,

It is with the greatest appreciation that I recognize the nearly 45 years of service to McLeod Health by Jeannette Glenn.

McLeod Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Education and Training, Jeannette has announced that she will be retiring on April 29, seeking the enviable opportunity to spend more time with children, grandchildren and continuing her work with her church, community volunteer work and outreach with youth.

Mrs. Glenn began her career with McLeod in 1966 as a staff nurse working in the Surgical Unit, Critical Care Unit, and the Emergency Room as a charge nurse. She has since worked in many other capacities such as head nurse, surgical clinical coordinator, director of staff development, and Associate Vice President and Vice President of Training and Education.

In her current role, Glenn leads the recruiting and retention efforts for McLeod Health, the largest employer in Florence County. As a Senior Vice President, Glenn has served as a member of the Leadership Council at McLeod Health and helped lead the creation of the strategic management plan for the Human Resources division.

Glenn’s educational background includes a diploma in nursing from Kate Bitting Reynolds Memorial Hospital School of Nursing in Winston-Salem, NC; a bachelor of science degree in nursing from the University of South Carolina in Columbia; a master’s degree in nursing administration from the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston; post-graduate studies at Francis Marion University, and management studies at Harvard University Graduate School of Business.

She was most recently honored with the 2010 Award for Professional Excellence in Human Resources Management by the South Carolina Chamber of Commerce and the State Council of the Society for Human Resource Management. She was also named the 2009-2010 Executive of the Year by the Florence chapter of the International Association of Administrative Professionals as well as a graduate of the Riley Diversity Leaders Initiative of the Riley Institute at Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.

Glenn has received numerous awards for her community affiliations. These include the Pee Dee Council of Girl Scouts of America, the Elizabeth Pettigrew Durant Children’s Center, the United Way of Florence County, the South Carolina Hospital Association Society, Pee Dee AHEC, Alpha Xi chapter of Sigma Theta Tau, Health Facilities Federal Credit Union, the Florence Career and Technology Education Advisory Committee, Florence Education and Business Alliance, and many more.

Her professional memberships include the American Nurses Association, South Carolina Hospital Association Society of Health Educators, the American College of Healthcare Executives, and the Society of Human Resources Management.

Glenn is also a member of Florence Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority and the Florence chapter of Top Ladies of Distinction. In addition, she is a member of Trinity Baptist Church, where she serves as Secretary of the Board of Trustees.

Please join me in extending our heartfelt appreciation to Jeannette for her tireless leadership and commitment to McLeod Health. We will miss her, but wish her well in this next special time of life’s journey.

Thanks,

Rob Colones
