Annual Hildreth and Stone Awards

History and Criteria of Hildreth and Stone Awards


Hildreth Award

The Hildreth Award was established by Martha Hildreth, a former employee, an original shareholder and a long-time member of the Board of Directors. This annual award recognizes a member of the Cottonwood Tucson staff who is successful in their role at Cottonwood while consistently demonstrating respect and responsibility to our patients, fellow staff members and Cottonwood’s mission. The award is presented with a crystal etched with our symbol, a Cottonwood Tree.

Stone Award

The Stone Award was a named appropriately in honor of a Cottonwood Therapist, Dan Stone. The purpose of the award is to recognize a Clinician that personifies tough clinical values while displaying compassion and empathy, especially when working with very challenging clients. The actual award is an amethyst geode with a rough exterior but great inner beauty, symbolizing the inner beauty the clinician helps the patient to discover within.

Both the Hildreth and Stone awards are presented annually in December to the recipients in a gathering of our staff.
