Our Hometown Hero of the Week is Austin Fann, Emergency Room Travel Nurse in Johnston County!
Austin was nominated by his wife, Megan, who says, “I believe my husband deserves this nomination because Austin is the most selfless, hard working and caring individual I have ever met. Austin has never complained about having to work in the Covid crisis. He wakes up everyday eager to do his job. Anyone that has had the pleasure of Austin’s care says the most admirable things about him. Austin’s cousin Ethan Myers, who has a very rare form of muscular dystrophy, inspired Austin to achieve his dreams of becoming an RN. His co-workers would say the same. In fact, Austin was nominated and awarded by his previous co-workers at Hoke Regional Hospital the Daisy Award for exceptional nurses! Watching him care for his family and hearing so many amazing stories from his past patients makes him a Hometown Hero. He is the best dad, husband and nurse. He is certainly my hero!”
Thank you, Austin, for your service! We’re sending you a gift card to Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q to thank you for all you do!
