Millicent — a Mentor and an Inspiration

Published on

A stalwart of the Comprehensive Bone Marrow Failure Center (BMFC), Millicent has been a program member since 2011 and Fiscal Manager since 2015. She is a hardcore Eagles fan — but not everyone knows about the true breadth of Millicent’s interests beyond her responsibilities to the CBMFC and Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Fellowship Program: CHOP Bioresponse Team member, CHOP Multicultural Professional Network member, and Spark Mentor.

Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has been a longstanding partner for the Spark Mentor Program, and Millicent has worked with Middle School students who visit once a week to develop skills and learn from mentors about schooling and career paths. Millicent has successfully volunteered for Spark for the last three years, dedicating her time to meeting with her small cohort of students every Thursday.

Her success as an inspiring mentor found more validation when she was selected as a Spark Most Valuable Person (MVP) for the Mentor All Star Awards. Spark MVPs are outstanding mentors who have been selected by company leaders and Spark staff to be recognized at the annual awards event.

This is a great honor and due recognition for a fantastic CBMFC team member.
