Essential Love

Dr. Cynthia Mickens-Ross, artist Regina Dean, and Levatta Dean Levels

By Marva J. Sneed

The essential workers at Charlton Methodist Hospital were shown appreciation and honored for their work on the front lines and even behind-the-scenes at the hospital by a DeSoto ISD Pre-K teacher and artist by trade, Regina Dean. Accompanied by her sister, Levatta Dean Levels, Dean presented a beautiful painting and a floating teacup. The sisters rolled up with a red wagon filled full with beautifully decorated gift bags and presented them to the President of the Fellowship of Professional Women, Dr. Cynthia Mickens-Ross. Dr. Ross, who is also Community Relations Director for Methodist Health System, said she was honored to receive the gifts and would personally give them to the essential workers.
