“This inaugural award honors Mr. Stovall who has demonstrated an unprecedented dedication to save lives through donation and transplantation,” hospital services associate Anne Willingham said, according to an ETMC news release. “His work was above and beyond most individuals, that we felt we needed to honor him in some way… so we created this award.”

Stovall was honored for his life of ministering and caring for families who are most in need and serving as a model for dedication, passion and service, the news release reads.

Willingham described Stovall as "omnipresent" during the 11 years he spent working at ETMC Tyler.
