On March 1, Gerry Royal of Laurel and Sen.
As the first African American female to become a member of the Milton Fire Department, Gerry Royal was named an Outstanding Young Woman of America in 1986.
Her work as a volunteer firefighter and emergency medical technician for Station 85 from 1981 to 1992, combined with the loss of her first husband to cancer, inspired Royal to pursue a career in nursing.She earned a diploma in practical nursing from Delaware Technical & Community College in Georgetown in 1985 and began working at Milford Memorial Hospital, later moving on to employment with Mountaire Farms in Selbyville.
In 1998, with the support of her second husband, Royal opened a home-based child care facility.The following year, she began providing rest care in her home for persons with disabilities.Her goal was to encourage self-sufficiency while promoting health and well-being, combining quality care with quality of life.
Reaching out beyond her own community from her home in Laurel, she established the Royal Ministries and Mission, which offers food, clothing, and additional aid to disadvantaged families, service members, and victims of natural disasters.Since its founding in 1999, the Royal Mission has served more than 7,000 people.In August 2005, Royal established the Royal Learning Center, an independent facility offering day care and education for underprivileged youngsters.
The ongoing pattern of Royal,s life has been to extend a helping hand to those in need regardless of race, creed, color, or situation.She goes into communities where others have given up so she can determine what kind of help will really make a difference, and then she gets busy acquiring and distributing the necessary resources.Her education, training, and experience, combined with her unflagging compassion for people in distress, have made her a goodwill ambassador whose efforts have improved thousands of lives.
