High Fives to Rust Medical Center Employees is written on a banner to thank healthcare workers

It was all hands on deck recently, as some of our elementary schools, including Cielo Azul Elementary, worked together to thank local healthcare workers for their unwavering dedication during the COVID-19 pandemic. RRPS students and community members made and donated “high-fives” made of construction paper with encouraging words and pictures drawn on them. The high-fives were then put together to create four banners. In total, over 600 hands were collected, with nearly 200 coming just from Cielo Azul students, to create the thankful pieces of art. The four banners were given to Rust Medical Center staff as our way of saying “thank you” for their hard work and continued service to our community. Thank you to all healthcare workers, we appreciate you!
