ADEA COS Thomas F. Nowlin Award

Purpose and Overview

The ADEA Council of Sections (ADEA COS) Thomas F. Nowlin Award for Outstanding Performance by a Section recognizes an ADEA section for exceptional demonstrated activities above and beyond the required performance requirements made throughout the year.

Dr. Thomas F. Nowlin served in several roles within the council, including Chair of Sections. He was well known in the council for his collegiality, positive attitude, creativity, honor, ethics and dedication to the craft of dental education. Thus, in 2006, the award was named after Dr. Nowlin to honor his memory, contributions, and leadership in the ADEA Council of Sections.

Eligible sections are nominated by the ADEA COS Administrative Board.
