Wednesday, October 23, 2019, Mid South Rehab Services, Inc. hosted a dinner honoring the UMMC's Class of Physical Therapists for 2020. Set to graduate this upcoming May, these students are in the midst of studying, clinical rotations, and many big decisions. Our Senior Recruiter, Shelly Aaron, put together a special night to introduce these professionals to our company and vice versa.
The dinner was hosted at Table 100 in Flowood, and guests enjoyed a gourmet cheese platter, delicious meatballs, and fried catfish bites with remoulade sauce as heavy hors d'oeuvres. This event was full of chatter and constant conversations. Students visited not only with Shelly, but also with Mark Buckley, JR Burnett, Karen Cole, and me. This was my first recruitment dinner with Mid South!
After opening remarks and hors d'oeuvres, guests took their seats, and we played our Why I Choose Mid South video. Then, the students took turns introducing themselves and explaining in which clinical setting they would prefer to work in the future. After that, dinner was served - their choice of either chicken or brisket, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a market salad.
Just before a delicious dessert of coffee cheesecake, we announced our door prize winner - Kealy Sand. After a group photo that was pretty tricky to maneuver, we said our goodbyes.
This recruitment dinner was a record turnout, and we are so proud to have met these upcoming physical therapists. It was a great night of fellowship and food, and we look forward to seeing our new friends soon.
