Coordinator of Student Health Services Lynne Meadows has been named March of Dimes Nurse Administrator of the Year, an honor recognizing her outstanding leadership, compassion and excellence as a healthcare professional.
Ms. Meadows was among more than 600 nurses, representing areas such as emergency care, nursing administration, behavioral health, pediatrics and public health, who were nominated from across the state for awards presented by the March of Dimes. Honorees were recognized at the organization’s Eight Annual Georgia Nurse of the Year awards ceremony in Buckhead in November.
“This award represents the extraordinary commitment and compassion that our school nurses bring to work with them every day,” said Ms. Meadows. “So this is a shared honor that I am proud to receive on behalf of school nurses and our school district.”
An 18-year employee of Fulton County Schools, Ms. Meadows developed, implemented and initiated the district’s successful health services program. Additionally, she serves as the state director and the state data champion for the National Association of School Nurses and the Georgia Association of School Nurses, secretary for the Fulton County Board of Health, member of the Georgia Asthma Advisory Board and Ronald McDonald/Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) Asthma Advisory Board and on many other boards and committees.
In 2011, she was recognized as the School Nurse Administrator of the Year by the Georgia Association of School Nurses; and in 2015, she was one of 10 selected to graduate as a Leadership Fellow for the national School-Based Health Alliance.
