Calvert joined the hospital staff in 2015 after retiring from the City of West Point. He graduated from West Point High School and attended East Mississippi Community College. He is trained in homeland security and CPR and is a certified umpire.
His nomination cited several examples of his dedication, including walking visitors to their destination rather than giving directions, helping visitors and employees whose cars won't start, suggesting ideas to improve his department and being a good listener.
He has one son, Demontez; three daughters, Kamron, J'Shunna and M'Paris; and a grandson, Haiden. He is a member of Hopewell Baptist Church.
