Last week two members of the Geisel School of Medicine community were honored at the Lone Pine Staff Recognition Awards ceremony for their outstanding contributions to Dartmouth.
Established by the Office of Human Resources in 2018, the Lone Pine Excellence Awards honor individuals or teams in six categories: collaboration, innovation, diversity and inclusion, leadership, passion and commitment, and unsung hero.
“I'm very proud of the contributions that our staff make to supporting our research and education programs and I am thrilled that members of our staff were honored again this year with Lone Pine Awards,” said Duane Compton, PhD, dean of the Geisel School of Medicine.
Tina Hoisington, events coordinator for Geisel, was honored with the Passion and Commitment Award, which recognizes individuals or teams who demonstrate unwavering passion and commitment that extends beyond the job requirements and inspire others to approach their work in the same positive and passionate way.
Dartmouth Innovations Accelerator for Cancer team members Bethany Solomon, executive director of development at the Dartmouth Cancer Center, along with Barry Schweitzer, associate director of the Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship, and Jamie Coughlin, executive director of the Magnuson Center, received the Innovation Award, which recognizes individuals or teams who have advanced the mission of the College through original and creative problem solving for the betterment of Dartmouth and the broader world.
A joint initiative of the Cancer Center, Geisel, and Dartmouth’s Magnuson Center for Entrepreneurship, the Accelerator provides Dartmouth cancer researchers the support and entrepreneurial guidance needed to bring innovations to the marketplace for the benefit of cancer patients, and provides Dartmouth students with learning opportunities in biomedical entrepreneurship.
