Glenn Lawson, director of AME/Technical Services has received the prestigious Charles Russell Bard Award for the Bard Medical Division. Bettye Anne Miles, executive assistant at Bard Urological Division, received the award for that location. The Bard Award is an honor recognizing outstanding character, abilities and achievements.
As R&D Manager of Hospital Products, Lawson helped with the development of the lubricath hydrophilic-coated Foley catheter. And, in 1992, as R&D Manager of Acute Care, he was instrumental in the success of the single most profitable Bard product ever — the BARDEX I.C. Foley catheter with a silver/hydrogel coating.
He has always provided support and guidance to those working for him, as well as the people to which he reports. He is a foremost authority on latex and has earned well-deserved respect within and outside of Bard, with both customers and vendors alike. Lawson ignites an interest in work among his colleagues and coworkers. He has a deep insight into the product development side of Bard and is a recognized authority.
He is a devoted husband and doting grandfather. He has taught Sunday school in the past and is active in his local church. Lawson has also long been a supporter of the American Cancer Society, American Lung Foundation, American Red Cross and a contributing supporter of numerous diabetes-related organizations for most of his life.
As an award winner, Lawson and his wife Linda received an all-expenses-paid trip to New York City. He was also honored at a recent company meeting.
Miles has received three employee excellence awards. Her genuine and caring attitude toward people is evident from her daily interaction with employees. Moreover, she is the heart and soul of company events. From the smallest detail, such as table setting or games for children, to food and entertainment, she finds a way to do it all — and within budget.
Miles has been a member of the Brad Porter Memorial Fund from its inception. The fund was created to assist employees and their families in times of need due to death, loss of employment, major illness or events beyond their control.
She was active in the schools that her daughters attended and — for several years — she and other church members cooked dinner once a month for the Ronald McDonald House in Atlanta so that families could share home-cooked meals together.

Bard’s management created the Charles Russell Bard Award in 1992 as a venue for employees to acknowledge their colleagues who demonstrate exemplary performance and commitment to Bard’s core values of quality, integrity, service and innovation.
