Bastyr Names Mission and Founders' Awards Winners

Bastyr University recently held its annual Mission and Founders' Awards Gala on campus, an inspirational reminder of the school's important role as an international leader in natural health.

Four individuals received 2010 Founders' Awards, named after the visionaries who helped Bastyr University become a reality. The award recipients distinguished themselves through outstanding professional achievement and service to the University:

  • Les Griffith, ND, Student Award : Jennifer Nelson, MA, ND Candidate (2012)
  • Joseph E. Pizzorno, Jr., ND, Alumnus(a) Award : Kasra Pournadeali, ND
  • William A. Mitchell, Jr., ND, Service Merit Award : Leanna Standish, PhD, ND, LAc, FABNO
  • Sheila Quinn Service to Society Award : Katherine Rose Hart, MS, CN

Additionally, Maxine Hayes, MD, MPH, state health officer, Washington State Department of Health, was named the recipient of Bastyr's most prestigious honor, the Mission Award, given to those who show leadership in improving the health and well-being of the human community.

"Bastyr University is proud to honor this year's Mission and Founders' Awards winners," University President Daniel K. Church, PhD, said. "It is a great way to recognize those who blazed a trail as well as those who are currently making a positive difference in the field of natural medicine, all at once."

The gala also served as a fundraiser for the University to continue operating as one of the top schools for natural medicine in the country. The event, held Oct. 9, raised $115,000 for scholarships and priority needs for the University. That amount was nearly double the amount raised last year.
