Dr. Michael Ward: Leaving the Bow Tie Behind for a New Life Chapter

Humble. Funny. Positive. Warm. Those are just some of the fond words colleagues use to describe Michael Ward, PhD, RTR, FASRT, vice dean of student affairs and diversity for Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College.

"I call him a king among people," says Angie Wade, director of communications and marketing at the college. Her team reports to Dr. Ward. "He's very humble so people don't always see how much he has done in so many people's lives, including our students and the people who work alongside him. He's also a very funny person. We tease each other all the time."

Wade and other Goldfarb team members say they will miss these qualities, along with his positive leadership style, strategic planning skills and signature bow tie as Dr. Ward retires from the college at the end of 2022.

Young Alumni Award  Winner: Elizabeth Gillam

Elizabeth Gillam, MSN, RN, APRN, FNP-BC, CCRN, CNML, knows that nursing is hard. And she knows that recently, it’s only gotten harder. But she believes that’s just an opportunity to grow. 

“I think of it as a challenge that we get to face. We get to be creative,” Elizabeth says. “Thinking of things differently can be scary but a cool challenge. And we get to be creative.” 

We’re honored to present Elizabeth with one of our 2023 Young Alumni Awards for her leadership and dedication to extraordinary care. 

“I’m so honored,” she says. “I’m so grateful for the time I had there. Everything I’ve done since was unlocked by being a student there.”

Young Alumni Award Winner: Trina Kumodzi

There is no formula for what makes a good nurse, according to Trina Kumodzi, Ph.D., RN, CCRN. What makes you a good nurse is what makes you different. 

"When entering this profession, you would be surprised at how it turns out. How you turn out,” Trina says. “Nursing is a constant discovery. There are things I’m still finding out every day.” 

It's a vital perspective to pass down to the next generation of nurses, which Trina does as an Assistant Professor at the University of Maryland School of Nursing. With an impressive resume and commitment to training the next generation of nurses, it might seem evident that Trina would be a 2022 Goldfarb Young Alumni Award recipient — except for Trina. “When I got the email, I thought, Is this real?” She recalls. “I didn’t say anything. Two days later, I finally told my husband.” 

The award was humbling. 

“I’m so excited. I feel renewed in the work that I’m doing,” Trina says. “It was the validation of the community. I didn’t have to do any work but be myself.”

Please join us in congratulating Trina as one of our 2022 Young Alumni Award recipients.
