Dewey Sebold accepts the Heritage Award from Karl Ulrich, M.D., M.M.M., former Clinic president and CEO.
D. David “Dewey” Sebold was recently honored as the 14th recipient of Marshfield Clinic’s Heritage Award last September, recognizing his many outstanding contributions to the community.
At Marshfield Clinic, Sebold is best known for the Gwen D. Sebold Research Fellowship Award, which he established in 1987. Since then, a $5,000 fellowship has been presented annually by Sebold to an outstanding researcher in support of further research studies at Marshfield Clinic Research Foundation. Sebold created the award in honor of his older sister, Gwen, whom he has described as “one of the most important and influential figures in my life.”
Dewey Sebold is a former president and CEO of Tombstone Pizza, a company he helped guide to become the No. 1 brand of frozen pizza in America. Over the course of his career, he has also served on the boards of many organizations. He is one of the original members of Marshfield Clinic’s National Advisory Council, a group of 20 business, medical and community leaders from across the United States. The group meets regularly and consults with Marshfield Clinic leadership on a number of important business issues.
The Heritage Foundation was established by the Clinic in 1997, working with Marshfield native, former Congressman and Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird. The Heritage Foundation owns Secretary Laird’s memorabilia and artifacts, on display in the Laird Center for Medical Research.
In addition to acting as steward to this collection, the Foundation annually honors an individual for outstanding contribution in the fields of government, civic leadership, literature, education, medicine, law, social sciences or business.
Congratulations to Dewey Sebold on his selection for this honor.
