MORGANTOWN, WV (LOOTPRESS) – A WVU nurse’s life was changed forever today when she received a visit at work from Gov. Jim Justice.
Denise Morrison and dozens of her coworkers at WVU Medicine’s J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown were called in for what they believed to be a simple meeting with the Governor. But Gov. Justice surprised the crowd, entering the room alongside Babydog and announcing that Morrison was the lucky person whose name had been drawn as the latest million-dollar prize winner in the “Do it for Babydog: Save a life, Change your life” Vaccination Sweepstakes.
The Governor then presented a ceremonial check for $1 million to Morrison, who works as a charge nurse in Ruby Memorial Hospital’s Surgical Services department.
Earlier in the day, Gov. Justice presented a woman from Charleston with the keys to a brand-new, custom-outfitted truck through the vaccination sweepstakes program.
Additional West Virginians were announced as “Do it for Babydog” winners this morning for prizes including two full four-year scholarships to any public institution in the state, five lifetime hunting licenses, five lifetime fishing licenses, five custom hunting rifles, five custom hunting shotguns, and 25 weekend getaways to West Virginia State Parks.
