BeliefNet says Levy is "inspirational"
BIDMC President and CEO Paul Levy has been nominated as one of the 10 Most Inspiring People of the Year by beliefnet.com.
The nominees were selected by the editors on the belief they "have saved lives and bettered our world in ways both large and small." One man landed a plane in the middle of a freezing river, saving everyone aboard. A teen rescued 22 school children from a troubled girl with a gun. Others worked to help people pay their bills, fed the down-and-out, saved people from layoffs, and showed homeless children that someone cares. One couple even danced for the sheer joy of being young and in love.
Levy was nominated for his plan to ask everyone at BIDMC chip in to save jobs and allow the lowest paid workers to get raises.
You can vote for Levy -- or any of the other nominees -- every day until Dec. 12.
