Lebanon — A Lebanon hospital president and West Lebanon businessman recently received ethics awards from the Rotary Club of Lebanon.
Sue Mooney, president and CEO of Alice Peck Day Memorial Hospital, received the Individual Ethics Award. Curt Jacques, owner of West Lebanon Feed and Supply, received the Business Ethics Award.
“This is a special acknowledgment for me, but also for APD,” Mooney said in a news release from the hospital.
Mooney received her medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Medicine and completed her residency at the University of New Mexico Medical Center at Albuquerque.
Through a fellowship at the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in White River Junction, she received a master’s degree from the Center for Evaluative Clinical Sciences, now The Dartmouth Institute, at Dartmouth College. She is certified by the American Board of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and is a member of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Jacques and his wife, Sharon Jacques, have owned the feed and supply store for 23 years.
He is chairman of the Lebanon Area Chamber of Commerce and a member of the West Lebanon Civic Association, which he helped re-establish after it had been dormant for years.
In a telephone interview, Jacques said he was “pleasantly honored” to receive the award.
“We’ve been very fortunate in past years,” receiving various awards, he said, including Pet Product News International’s 2013-2014 Retailer of the Year.
“They are all wonderful awards,” most of which require financial documents and other information attesting to the company’s health and contributions to the industry.
But the Rotary Club award was different.
“It was by the people we serve in our community,” from a group of people “who really follow what we are about,” which made it more special, Jacques said. “It was probably one of the more important things we have ever received.”
