Volunteer work: Ms. Fagg has been a volunteer for more than two years in Harbor Hospital Center's emergency room.

About the volunteer: A recent premed graduate from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a degree in biology and psychology, Ms. Fagg is taking courses at Anne Arundel Community College.

The former Glen Burnie resident and graduate of Glen Burnie High plans to attend West Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine. She hopes to someday set up a family practice in rural Virginia.

She was recently hired at North Arundel Hospital to assist in the morgue and billing office.

Volunteer's comments: "I've had previous nursing assistance experience. I love it [volunteering]. The nurses have been very good to me basically with helping me become a really good nursing assistant. I've learned a lot.

"I try my very best to do a good job. It's given me wonderful experience with patient contact.

"People don't like to go there [in ER] so anything I can do to make the experience more comfortable or pleasant I try to do. I have more time than the nurses. I have all the time in the world to explain things to the patient when the nurses get tied up.

"Harbor lets the volunteers have as much or as little contact as they want with patients."

Organization's comments: "Michelle is a nifty young lady. She is noteworthy since she is a premed student. She feels that she has been rewarded so much working in ER," said Ann Heil, the hospital's volunteer coordinator.
