Carroll University recognized three outstanding employees as this year’s recipients of the Ethos Awards. This is the second year the awards have been given to individuals who exemplify in their daily work and lives the tenets of our Ethos: Respect, Integrity and Stewardship.

Tony Aker | Respect

An excerpt from his nomination paints a portrait of the inherent respect Anthony gives to his student-athletes: “Anthony works tirelessly to recruit student-athletes to Carroll and the football program. He becomes so knowledgeable on each student's gifts and helps each student shine, given their strengths. I can see this as Anthony speaks with his student-athletes both on and off the field. He truly honors the dignity and worth of each member of our diverse community by building relationships of trust. Anthony’s students work hard because he works hard. They go the extra mile because he goes the extra mile. Students want to achieve, succeed and shine because of Anthony's leadership.”

Aker is the associate head football coach and offensive and recruiting coordinator for diversity and athletics.

Dawn Scott | Integrity

An excerpt from one of her nominations captures her dedication and hard work: “Dawn is a role model for us all who embodies every characteristic of the Carroll Ethos, and uses the Ethos to inform her work and interactions with others each day. She works tirelessly to support the mission and goals of the university and never gives less than 100% in everything she does.”
Another nomination said: “Dawn Scott is the epitome of integrity. She puts her team and the university above herself, unexpectedly stepped into a role to lead the enrollment team and made the restructuring of an entire area as seamless as possible to keep the team moving forward and exceed recruitment goals.”

Scott is the associate vice president for enrollment/director of financial aid.

 John Vitale | Stewardship

An excerpt from his nomination shows John’s winning way with people: “John is a stellar example of what it means to be a Pioneer. His stewardship of relationships with the residents of Kilgour and his dedication to making the building a better place for them to live is truly awe-inspiring. A few examples of his stewardship of relationships include leaving Post-it Notes on the doors of the residents who were a part of a show to congratulate them and leaving treats for residents on special holidays and during final exams.”

Vitale is a physical plant utility worker.
