Three earn Hine Medallions

Retiring dean Nick Kellum, Marion County Superior Court Judge Gerald S. Zore and healthcare expert Eric Tinsley are this year's recipients of the prestigious IUPUI Maynard K. Hine Medallion for service to the campus and its students.

Hine Medallions, sponsored by the IUPUI Alumni Council, honor "unique and significant impact" on IUPUI .

Kellum is stepping down after a recordsetting tenure as dean of the IU School of Physical Education and Tourism, a 38-year run that saw major expansion of the oldest existing school preparing PE teachers in the country. Kellum also established IUPUI as a national power in women's softball in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA), earning a place in the NAIA Hall of Fame.

Zore, a 1968 graduate of the IU School of Law-Indianapolis, is in his fifth term on the school's alumni association board of directors and also serves as the executive council representative for the school in the IU Alumni Association.

Tinsley is the vice president for process, technology and training at My Health Care Manager, an organization that helps seniors and their families manage the health-related complexities of older adult life. He was honored for his work in linking the Purdue School of Science to the community, including the school's involvement in Indiana's fledgling New Tech High Indiana initiative, in which high school students learn in the workplace and volunteers teach in the classroom.
