Harvard Heroes 2014

With many outstanding candidates from all over the University, only 60 individuals from over 12,000 Harvard staff were selected as Harvard Heroes in 2014. 

We would like to thank the selection committee for their time and thoughtfulness in selecting HLC’s 2014 Harvard Heroes:  David Mattke-Robinson (HSPH), Sarah Hamilton (HMS), Christine Narsjo (HSDM), Tamara Brown (HMS), Dawn Decosta (HSDM), Jermaine Reid (HMS), Noman Siddiqi (HSPH) and Leslie Howes (HSPH).  As in previous years, the selection committee followed a blind selection process.
