Ms. July, Tena Sigmon
Tena was born and raised in Gastonia, North Carolina. She later moved to Fort Pierce, graduated high school, and moved back to North Carolina. A few years later she came back to Fort Pierce to work for Orthopedic Surgeons until 1987 and then General and Vascular Surgeons until 2016 when she retired.
She is the mother of 3 beautiful children, Michelle, Mickey II, and Marcus, grandmother of 6, and great grandmother of 2.
Tena is the president of the Pilot Club of Fort Pierce and the president of her church Congregation, Trinity Lutheran Church. She volunteers for Mustard Seed Ministries, Family Meals, and at Lawnwood Medical Center in the Clergy Department to visit in-patients. Her passion is helping others, but enjoying her family is her favorite way to spend time. She added HANDS to her list of volunteering after seeing the need in the county of so many people having no medical coverage and she wanted to be an asset to helping their need.
She loves St. Lucie County, her little slice of paradise.
Join Tena along with Gerri Elliot for her fundraiser on July 20th! Details are on our website!
