Volunteer of the year

      The Sparrow Women’s Board of Managers and the Sparrow Volunteer Services Department have selected Fred Cogswell of Lansing, Mich., as the February Volunteer of the Month.  Cogswell joined Sparrow as a cardio ambassador in 2002 and quickly picked up other volunteer roles within the Medical Library, Volunteer Department and many other departments that have come to depend on him during different times of the year to complete projects for them.  He became interested in volunteering for Sparrow when a cardio ambassador visited him during a hospital stay for heart complications.   He was encouraged to attend a volunteer meeting with the group. From there, he began volunteering once a week, visiting with heart patients and their families. It wasn’t long until he was looking for additional opportunities.  He began volunteering with the staff in the Medical Library and has served as president of that volunteer group for more than five years. The Volunteer Office also has utilized his talents for numerous duties including recording volunteer hours, serving on the Volunteer Recruitment Task Force and helping with recruitment activities.
