The recipient of this year’s North Harrison Ken Oppel Staff Spirit Award is Shannon Murphy.

Murphy has been a nurse with the North Harrison Community School Corp. since 2011. Her nursing career started in 1997 with Baptist East Hospital.

“Her leadership and professionalism in guiding the corporation through the pandemic has been nothing short of stellar,” said Chris Allen, who presented Murphy with the award. “She has spent countless hours after school, evenings and even on weekends doing contact tracing. She likely had the most demanding position in the entire corporation for the last 18 months.”

Murphy and her husband, Robert, have two daughters, Sam and Taylor.

The award is sponsored by the Crandall, New Salisbury, Palmyra and Ramsey Lions clubs.
