Dr. Mark Praeger, a longtime Lawrence surgeon, far left, is honored for serving on the Lawrence Memorial Hospital's Board of Trustees for nine years. Joe Flannery, chairman of the board, presented Praeger with a plaque this morning (Jan. 20) during the board's monthly meeting in LMH's auditorium. Praeger became an employee of the hospital on Jan. 1, so he is no longer eligible to serve on the board. At the table, from left: Gloria Pringle, secretary to the president; The Rev. Verdell Taylor, LMH trustee; Dr. Scott Solcher, LMH chief of staff; Andy Ramirez, general counsel; and Gene Meyer, CEO and president.
