Research shows that too many health care organizations underperform and fail to achieve their objectives. The root cause of underperforming is a management approach that misdirects organizational efforts. What the health care system needs is Uncommon Leaders: those who understand how to connect the elements that produce stellar outcomes for patients.
The JB Metzger Uncommon Leader Scholarship was established in memory of JB Metzger, an Uncommon Leader who had emerged as a leader in the mortgage industry and was president of The Metzger Group before his loss in a traffic accident at age 28. His boundless energy and enthusiasm at work made him a joy to be around. His advice for young leaders contained these fundamentals of success:
The JB Metzger Uncommon Leader Scholarship is provided by Stephanie and Clay Sherman, JB's mother and stepfather, to support the management profession that has meant much to their lives, to honor Stephanie's son in a significant and meaningful way, and to recognize leadership traits important to them and the health care profession as a whole. ASU programs that are focused on leadership and management in the health sector were selected because JB Metzger was an ASU alumnus, and the scholarship's local presence enables the Shermans to be engaged with the college and involved in the mentorship of students.
The award(s) shall support one or more students admitted to ASU graduate programs in the College of Health Solutions and/or the College of Nursing & Health Innovation focused on leadership and management in health care delivery and administration such as but not limited to the Science of Health Care Delivery, currently in the College of Health Solutions.
Scholarship recipients will have a graduate GPA of at least 3.5 on a 4-point scale and at least three references demonstrating past or current achievement in leadership positions. The scholarship is for those who are dedicated to the idea that the leadership of health care professions must be reorganized and redefined in order to pursue higher standards of professional practice.
