Published on 06 June 2013

Alumnus Sam Tadrus ’63 was honored with the College’s Distinguished Service Award at the annual Mortar and Pestle Society Dinner on April 19 at Norwood Hills Country Club. Established in 1990, the Distinguished Service Award honors exemplary leadership and philanthropy in support of the College and is the highest honor presented to Mortar and Pestle Society members.

Tadrus, owner and manager of Sam’s Health Mart Pharmacy-which has two locations in his hometown of Moberly, Mo., and another location in Fayette, Mo.-is a pillar in his community, according to Brett Schott, vice president of the Office of Advancement at the College.

“He built his career through innovation and forward thinking in growing the pharmacies he has owned and managed,” Schott adds. “A remarkable man and an ardent supporter of the College, Sam is truly an asset to the College and our community."

The Mortar and Pestle Society, the premier giving society at the College, recognizes those who support STLCOP with annual contributions that total $1,000 or more, lifetime giving of $10,000 or more, or through a planned or deferred gift of at least $20,000.

More than 180 of the College’s top donors attended the event.
