On June 13, UT Southwestern welcomed 49 employees into the Quarter Century Club, meaning they have reached a career milestone of 25 years of service. At the annual event, 34 other colleagues who have achieved 30, 35, 40, or 45 years of service were also honored.
Marilynn Bordelon, a Patient Safety Coordinator, was recognized for 45 years of service. Ms. Bordelon wants to inspire fellow nurses to stay at UTSW and to “take chances, do their best, and just think of the patient first.” Ruben Jimenez Jr., a Mechanical Foreman celebrating 35 years, said UT Southwestern has given him opportunities to grow. “I just love it. Every day is a challenge,” he said. The two were among employees interviewed in this video about what has kept them devoted to working at UTSW.
