The Texas Tech Health Sciences Center is honoring a long-term volunteer. Paul Mohr, a retired pastor, has served the center since 1993.
The Garrison Institute's Retired Senior Volunteer Program presented him with a plaque Tuesday morning.
Paul Mohr may be in his early 80s, but he still helps escort visitors through the Health Sciences Center's hallways once a week.
He spent 65 years of his life as a pastor, and estimates he has served a total of 6,000 hours at the center in 21 years.
Dennis Lamb, Senior Director for Patient Services, says the great thing about Mohr is that no one makes him do this.
"That's what the inspiration is to employees and other people around," Lamb says. "Just seeing him do it because he wants to."
"It's just that I really enjoyed it. helping people," Mohr said.
Lamb said the Health Sciences Center is lucky to have someone like Mohr, who is so dedicated to service.
