Cynthia Dominick, director of operations development at Tidelands Health, arrived early to the community COVID-19 testing event Friday at Coastal Carolina University eager to once again jump in wherever needed and make a difference.
She stood by the large, white testing tents assessing the setup, unaware that she’d be having an impact that goes way beyond testing. When she reached down to pick up the handy cooler she always brings with her to the testing events, something unusual on the pavement caught her eye.
“I bent down to pick it up and realized it was a ring – a wedding ring,” Dominick says.
Well, that’s odd. Only a couple of Tidelands Health team members had arrived. This ring must belong to the team that put up the tent the previous day, she thought. The hunt was on.
