Did you know that today, Thursday, May 6th 2021 is National Nurses Day?

In honor of National Nurses Day and just to bring a smile to the faces of local school nurses, United Supermarkets and Market Street delivered bouquets of flowers to school nurses across the Lubbock area.

In a press release on Thursday, United Supermarkets noted that "over the last year everyone has developed a new appreciation for just how important healthcare workers are". Earlier in the week, United Supermarkets recognized educators in Lubbock.

“Just as we recognized our local educators earlier in the week, we wanted to extend some appreciation to another group who deserves all the recognition,” said Sidney Hopper, president of the United Family. “School nurses along with all healthcare workers have had a tough year with challenge after challenge due to COVID-19. We hope our small gift of flowers will be a reminder of the appreciation we have for them.”

Observed annually on May 6, National Nurses Day was created to raise awareness of all nurse contributions and commitments as well as acknowledge the vital role nurses play in society. United Supermarkets and Market Street are proud to take part in this day.

Happy Nurses Day to all the nurses in Lubbock keeping people healthy.

LOOK: Here are the 50 best beach towns in America

Every beach town has its share of pluses and minuses, which got us thinking about what makes a beach town the best one to live in. To find out, Stacker consulted data from WalletHub, released June 17, 2020, that compares U.S. beach towns. Ratings are based on six categories: affordability, weather, safety, economy, education and health, and quality of life. The cities ranged in population from 10,000 to 150,000, but they had to have at least one local beach listed on TripAdvisor. Read the full methodology here. From those rankings, we selected the top 50. Readers who live in California and Florida will be unsurprised to learn that many of towns featured here are in one of those two states.

Keep reading to see if your favorite beach town made the cut.
