Honors and Awards Recipients

Marilyn Quintana Moline Mentorship Awards

Marilyn Quintana Moline was a skillful, kind, and encouraging mentor to many of us in Arizona!  She excelled at working with new clinicians and graduate students, especially in the area of neurological impairments. She received her MA at the University of Denver in 1968 and came to work at the Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Phoenix in 1969, serving as its Director of Speech Pathology services until her retirement in 1991. She became a Fellow of ASHA in 1988 and served in ArSHA several years, most notably as its President from 1984-1988.

Marilyn passed away on Thanksgiving Day, 1999. Her husband, John Moline, addressed us at the next ArSHA convention.  He said she died from progressive multiple sclerosis, which was in addition to the spinal cord injury she sustained when she was 14 years old that left her a “wheelchair user.”  In her final years, she endured all that was happening to her without complaining. 

John said, “She was the bravest person I ever met.” Rather than use his money for personal gain, he set up an endowment for a graduate fellowship at ASU in Marilyn’s name and an endowment for the addition of a monetary gift to be added to the Mentorship Award that ArSHA planned in her memory.  He said he wanted to help persons already in the profession who were as dedicated as she was. In his closing remarks at our convention, he said, “When these endowments became a reality, I felt the greatest sense of satisfaction and the most happiness that anything could have given me at this point in my life.  I’m sure Marilyn would be pleased with this Mentorship Award in her honor.”

James Case
Student Clinical Award

Dr. James Case was a professor in the ASU Department of Speech and Hearing Science for 33 years. He was a Fellow of ASHA and he was a recipient of the Honors of ArSHA, also receiving its Marilyn Quintana Moline Mentorship Award. He served for 15 years on the highly respected Southwest Craniofacial Medical team.  Dr. Case was well known for his work in voice disorders and his popular textbook, Clinical Management of Voice Disorders, but he was even more known for his excellence in treating his patients with kindness and compassion and for his role as a caring mentor and role model for both professionals and students.  He was chosen as an outstanding teacher in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University.  Dr. Case inspired his students and made learning fascinating and fun.  His genuine concern and respect for others and his love of his profession were obvious to all.  His early departure from ASU due to illness in 2006 was truly a great loss.

His spirit is kept alive at ASU through a department sponsored annual James Case Memorial Workshop in fall at ASU – and a James Case Speech and Hearing Scholarship which provides financial aid to those seeking a profession in the art and science of speech-language pathology.

His spirit is kept alive in ArSHA.   In memoriam in 2006, the ArSHA student clinician award was formally renamed in honor of Dr. Case, and our annual James Case Student Clinical Award was born.  At the 2006 ArSHA convention, the late Dr. Anthony DeFeo, a remarkable SLP and Clinic Director at the U of A, presented a video tribute in honor of Dr. Case called, “The Master, the Mentor, the Man,” after which there was a prolonged standing ovation from all convention attendants.  The deep gratitude and respect shown by those present was truly remarkable.
