Kelly Services' Healthcare Division Celebrates National Nurses Week

TROY, Mich. (March 15, 2007) - In an effort to acknowledge the hard work and dedication of our nation's nearly 2.9 million registered nurses, Kelly Healthcare Resources, a business unit of global staffing provider Kelly Services, Inc., today announced that Michelle Williams, RN, will be honored as its Nurse of the Year during National Nurses Week, May 6-12, 2007.

Williams was selected from more than 3,000 Kelly nurses as this year's national winner. She currently works on temporary assignment through Kelly as a project manager, performing clinical credentialing of transplant and bariatric hospitals. She also continues to work weekends at a local hospital as an oncology nurse at an inpatient bone marrow transplant unit, as well as a PRN nurse at an outpatient oncology infusion clinic.

"Working with Kelly Healthcare has been an amazing opportunity that has enabled me to learn and grow as a nurse. The work arrangements they offer provide me with the flexibility to learn a new aspect of the nursing field, while allowing me to continue doing what I love most - being a nurse," said Michelle Williams.

"Michelle exemplifies the highest standards of integrity and quality in the services we deliver to our customers," said Connie Gray, business unit leader, Kelly Healthcare Resources. "She is a model employee in the field of nursing and consistently displays a high level of professionalism, a strong work ethic and extraordinary dedication."

The National Nurse of the Year award was developed to recognize Kelly nurses for their outstanding work in the healthcare industry. The award, which will be presented to Williams in conjunction with National Nurses Week in May, is based on performance feedback from customers of Kelly Healthcare Resources.
