To receive this distinguished award we look for an employee who goes above and beyond their job requirements. Someone who is always looking for a way to better themselves, the people around them and this company. This individual has done just that.

We would like to congratulate Sheala Vice on being the employee of the quarter. She is a staff radiology technologist for GTEC Port Arthur and has been with the company since its inception 5 years ago. She graduated from Orange Memorial High School and has over 47 years of experience in her field. She helped create the protocols and techniques used at GTEC today for the CT machine. Her job entails: quality patient care, Quality Control of the CT machine, X-Ray patients, help with labs and run tests. She goes above and beyond for this company to make other employees and patients happy and taken care of. Sheala is always helping with event and continuing to find ways to improve Golden Triangle Emergency Center.

Sheala is mom to three daughters, 4 grandsons and 1 granddaughter, and she has two cats Ash and Bibbity (like Cinderella). She loves to read books- preferably crime novels (she could take us all out), garden, shop, admire jewelry, food and to travel! She loves her grandchildren and is always attending their events in Bridge City. She just recently returned from a trip to Russia and Rome and will be heading to London by the end of this month.  So, if you see her be sure to tell her congratulations!

Upon receiving this award, the employee will receive a certificate of recognition, their picture hung on the “Wall of Fame”, their own parking space for 90 days, 12 hours of paid time off, and their name is considered for employee of the year. Congratulations again Sheala Vice!

Each fall and spring semester, Golden Triangle Emergency Center in Orange awards a $250, and $500 scholarship to students enrolled in the LVN and RN program at Lamar State College-Orange, respectively.

Golden Triangle Emergency Center staffs its facilities with top-tier professionals and recognizes the value of investing in the future generations of healthcare providers in our local community. The scholarship recipients must demonstrate passion for the profession in an 800 word essay, have a 3.0 GPA, and submit a resume illustrating a history of excellence.

This year’s LVN scholarship was awarded to Parker Kidder of Orange, Texas. Parker is a nursing student at LSCO and has a GPA of 3.75. Passionate about providing high-quality healthcare with an emphasis on compassion and patient education, Parker stood out as the kind of future healthcare professional that would enrich the workforce. Parker plans to continue his education and pursue a Bachelor’s of Science in Nursing upon completion of the LVN program.

Landon Procella of Orange, Texas, is this spring’s RN scholarship recipient. Landon is an LVN who graduated from LSC-O in 2016. Upon graduation, Landon worked as a Medical Surgical Nurse at The Medical Center of SETX. He currently works full-time as a floor nurse and part-time in case management at Post Acute Medical Rehab Hospital of Beaumont while enrolled in the RN program at LSC-O. Landon’s dedication to providing meaningful care to his patients while studying to expand his skill-set in healthcare set his application apart.  He plans to apply to a Nurse Practitioner program sometime after graduation.
