St. Joseph Health Legacy Award Recognizes Two for Living Franciscan Mission, Values

Bryan, TX, April 30, 2024—St. Joseph Health named Louis Humber and Scott Goble, MD, the 2024 Legacy Award Recipients for their commitment to Franciscan values and for continuing the legacy of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, Ohio, who founded St. Joseph Health 89 years ago. St. Joseph Health was pleased to present the Legacy Awards to Mr. Humber and Dr. Goble at a ceremony at St. Joseph Health Regional Hospital in Bryan last week. 

“We were so happy to present Mr. Humber and Dr. Goble with Legacy Awards this year,” said Kim Shaw, BSN, MBA, FACHE, President and CEO of St. Joseph Health. “Both of these individuals are so dedicated to our organization and work tirelessly to leave a positive impact on our community. These two men truly embody the values of humility and selflessness, and it is such an honor to add them to this distinguished list of individuals.” 

Each year, team members, medical staff and the community have an opportunity to nominate individuals who have dedicated at least 20 years of service to St. Joseph Health. The Legacy Awards highlight a commitment to the Sisters’ core values of tenderness, humility, selflessness and reverence for all creation. Nominees must be a current or former staff member or medical staff member or must have had an association with St. Joseph Health for at least 20 years of service through volunteer efforts. All nominees must share and showcase the values of St. Francis through their work at St. Joseph Health. 

Louis Humber has dedicated over 30 years to St. Joseph Health. As a Maintenance Technician III, Mr. Humber goes above and beyond every day to make sure facility needs are taken care of. He is a friend to everyone he meets, and his impact on the hospital and health system is evident in the respect and admiration he has earned from colleagues, patients and the community. He is humble and gracious, embodying the spirit of service and selflessness, and every day, his example keeps the legacy of St. Francis alive. 

Scott Goble, MD, has provided radiation oncology services to the Brazos Valley community for over 20 years. Described by his colleagues as compassionate, kind, humble, and dedicated, Dr. Goble exemplifies and honors Franciscan values in his practice daily. Putting his patient’s well-being first, he ensures everyone is treated with reverence, dignity, tenderness and humility at every encounter. Dr. Goble serves as an inspiring role model for his colleagues. His selfless dedication and unwavering commitment to his patients, colleagues and the Brazos Valley community have made him an exceptional leader and provider in our community. 

Honorees receive a plaque, which is displayed in Regional Hospital near the Legacy Tree, a monument commemorating the core values of the Sisters of St. Francis of Sylvania, Ohio. Past award recipients include John Hall, MD; Kathryn O’Briant Wier; Reed Edmundson; Anna Damian, MD; Stephen Braden, MD; Betty Jo Harp; C.H.
