Honoring SPIRIT at MHRI

Grant Gonzalez was awarded the SPIRIT of Excellence Award during the MHRI Virtual Town Hall.  Grant is the Director of Finance Operations for the Office of Financial Management. Nominated by Ron Migues, Executive Director, MedStar Health Research Institute, the award was presented by Tina Stanger, Assistant Vice President of Research Administration.

Grant was recognized for his willingness to work with anyone and his infectious smile.  Grant is a problem solver and is dedicated to gather all the necessary components to make something more efficient.

“Wanted to give you a huge thank you for taking the time to work with me and my team to ensure our finances are up to date and as accurate as possible,” said Ron Migues. “Given we encompass so many areas and have the most diverse areas of research, it usually takes a small village to accomplish anything, but you have stepped forward and are leading us to become financially sound.  We really see all you do and are extremely appreciative for the support!”

The SPIRIT Award is given to recognize and reward one associate (management or non-management) each quarter, who excels in Service, Patient First, Integrity, Respect, Innovation, and Teamwork. 

Nominations are based on submission to the MHRI Kudos program. Each quarter, the MHRI Executive Team will review the KUDOS submissions and select an associate or manager who best exemplifies all our SPIRIT values.
