Dr. Heidi Vermette receives Joseph “JL” Tucker Memorial Award

The highest recognition the Knoxville Regional Veterans Mental Health Council (Council) and Vet to Vet Tennessee (V2VT) can bestow on an individual is the Jospeh “JL” Tucker Memorial Award.  The award was presented to the former Associate Chief of Staff Mental Health Dr. Heidi Vermette by Mountain Home VAMC Facility Director Mr. Dean Borsis on behalf of the Knoxville Regional Veterans Mental Health Council (Council) and Vet to Vet Tennessee on October 17, 2017.

Dr. Vermette was the first Mountain Home VAMC liaison to the Council in November 14, 2013.  She remained in that position until September 2017.

Even though the Council and the Mountain Home VAMC leadership had enormous bridges to build, Dr. Vermette never stop trying to “help veterans.”  Her leadership and vision really excelled in January 2016 with the support from acting Facility Director Dan Synder.
