JONESBORO -- Leah Brown is the recipient of the Region 8 Nurse of the Year award.

Brown works as a Registered Nurse at "Kids First" in Pocahontas, working with special needs children.

She was nominated online through KAIT8.com

She was then chosen by a panel of officials in the area.

Brown said she was grateful to receive such a competitive award, and feels like she's being praised for doing exactly what she loves to do.

"I just love to take care of people, and love to make a difference in the lives of the children, and I get to see that everyday," said Brown.

Nurses from any discipline were eligible for the award, as long as they lived in Region 8's viewing area.
