The 2nd annual Tonnies Preceptor Award was given out at this year’s meeting. The Tonnies awards was established in honor of Fred Tonnies, Jr for his longstanding support of MSHP, MMSHP, and numerous professional and academic contributions to Pharmacy, including over 35 years of dedicated service to student learners. The award recognizes a pharmacist for their sustained contribution to precepting learners in health-system pharmacy, mentoring students/residents in the research process, activity with pharmacy students throughout the state, and service to the profession through ASHP, MSHP, and/or local affiliates. This year’s Tonnies Preceptor Award was presented to Austin Campbell. Dr. Campbell is Clinical Pharmacy Specialist in Psychiatry at the Missouri Psychiatric Center at the University of Missouri Health Care. His investment in developing future practitioners has been evident for many years.

Our final award was the Garrison Award. The Garrison Award recognizes an individual who demonstrates outstanding accomplishments in health-system pharmacy practice, demonstrates teaching through involvement with pharmacy students and contributions to the professional of pharmacy through involvement with MSHP, ASHP, or local affiliates. This year’s award was presented to Diane McClaskey. Diane is the Assistant Director of Experiential Education and Clinical Assistant Professor for the University of Missouri Kansas City, School of Pharmacy at MSU. She embodies the spirit of the Garrison Award in her continuous efforts in student involvement, research and publications, and leadership. We were honored to award this year’s Garrison Award to Diane! Congratulations!!
