HANOVER, N.H.—The class of 1976 at the Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth created the Allwin Community Service Award in honor of their classmate James Allwin, who passed away in 2007. The award recognizes Tuck students or recently graduated alumni who embody Allwin's values of community service, with a preference for students pursuing a career in the nonprofit or public sector. The award is also a reminder of how Allwin, a successful businessman, used his skills, time, and resources to make a difference in the lives of those in need.

This year's recipient is Micah Sagebiel T'10, who has a background in nonprofit management and public policy. He began his career with Teach for America as a middle school teacher in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. While pursuing a graduate degree in public policy at the University of Texas at Austin, Micah helped design a new center for international security studies and worked as a research associate at the RGK Center for Philanthropy. In his last role prior to attending Tuck, Micah led an education reform initiative for the Texas High School Project, a public-private alliance of leading philanthropic organizations and the State of Texas. In this role, Micah managed a project that created 40 new high schools and seven university centers focused on increasing the number of students who study and enter science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) careers.

"Jim's family and classmates will be delighted to learn that Micah's work experiences were in education before Tuck," says Patricia Palmiotto, director of Tuck's Allwin Initiative for Corporate Citizenship. "Jim was a strong believer in education and served for many years as chairman of the board of the national nonprofit organization, Communities in Schools. Micah's experiences in education combined with the knowledge from his degree in public policy and the business skills from his Tuck MBA will prepare Micah for a future filled with opportunity."

After graduation, Micah will work for the Michael and Susan Dell Foundation, which aims to transform the lives of children living in urban poverty through better health and education.

"My time at Tuck has further convinced me that the traditional boundaries between the private, public, and nonprofit sectors are shifting. The Tuck community has not only pushed me to hone my management skills, but has reframed how I value a strong community," Micah says. "I am excited to return to my career working with diverse organizations that seek to solve intractable social challenges, proud to be a Tuckie, and honored to receive the Allwin Award."

In addition to giving back to the community, Jim Allwin left an impression on Tuck. Along with providing the naming gift that allowed the launch of the Allwin Initiative for Corporate Citizenship, he served on the Tuck Board of Overseers for 16 years.

Founded in 1900, Tuck is the first graduate school of management in the country and consistently ranks among the top business schools worldwide. Tuck remains distinctive among the world's great business schools by combining human scale with global reach, rigorous coursework with experiences requiring teamwork, and valued traditions with innovation.
