The word “courage” has been used widely to describe the health care community since the outbreak of COVID-19. You understand why when you see Materials Associate Clenton Manderville in action. Without hesitation, he took on the responsibility to be the materials leader for the COVID-dedicated Green Valley Campus. Rarely has a day gone by when Clenton wasn’t on-site to ensure that nurses and other caregivers had what they needed to best serve their patients. Often, he not only responded to supplies requests, he anticipated them. Clenton knew what others needed and he delivered, tirelessly and with a positive attitude that lifted the spirits of those around him even during the most challenging of times.
Clenton is the walking embodiment of what it means to go the extra mile. But to him, there’s nothing extra about it. It’s simply what he is here to do, and he sees things through regardless of the time or effort required. This is the stuff legends are made of.
