Sesquicentennial Ethic of Service Awards were presented to six members of the University community in an April 22 ceremony at Whittemore House.
The awards are intended to treasure the influence St. Louis has on the University and to honor University community members who believe in and shape the future of our region.
This is the first year the awards were presented. They will be given annually to a select group of University community members who exemplify a character of service and giving to the St. Louis region.
This year’s recipients were seniors Juliet DiLeo and Linda Esah; Edy Yong Kim, an M.D./Ph.D. student in the School of Medicine; G. Scott Robinson, systems programmer in the University’s Division of Computing & Communications; alumnus Sanford Silverstein; and W. Edwin Dodson, M.D., associate vice chancellor and associate dean for medical school admissions and financial aid and for Continuing Medical Education, and professor of pediatrics and neurology.
“This award was designed to highlight the good work being done by members of the Univer-sity community in their service to St. Louis, and to inspire continued contributions to our region,” said Stephanie Kurtzman, coordinator for community service and chair of the award committee. “We sought a ‘character’ of giving rather than counting hours served, numbers of board positions, etc.
“We aimed to bring together a diverse group of honorees from across the University community, and I think they demonstrate the many different routes to service we can all take.”
