Sun Country Everyday Hero:

Sammantha Kirkwold - Victoria, MN

Sammantha has spent her entire life selflessly putting the needs of others before her own. Sammantha has ALWAYS gone above and beyond her entire young life. She never says no to anyone in need and will do whatever it takes to help someone. Since graduating from college she has been a social worker in the memory care unit at Martin Luther Care Center in Bloomington. As an essential worker, she helps care for not only those most vulnerable during this pandemic, but their families as well, many of whom struggle with the realities of not being able to see their loved ones. Throughout the pandemic, Sammantha has been forced to navigate her residents through tremendous hardship as many of them have lost their battles with this terrible virus. She does everything and anything she can to help her patients and their families feel comfortable every step of the way, putting their needs before her own. Outside of her full time job, she has taken on a part time job in a different area to help her patients as well. She volunteers her time at her church and other places in need to help.
