2010 Social Work Award Recipients
Outstanding Graduating Senior: Emily Salzmant and Karen Heiman
Each year, the social work faculty awards two small scholarships to students in the social work program. The Social Work faculty selects the winners of these awards from the senior class based on outstanding academic achievement.
Grace and Glenn W. Long Memorial Scholarship: Jackie Anschutz
The Grace and Glenn W. Long Memorial Scholarship was established to perpetuate the memory of Grace and Glenn at Kansas State University and to provide financial assistance to students majoring in Sociology and Social Work. The fund was begun in 1990 by Ivalee Long, Glenn's second wife. Glenn and Grace were married for 30 years. Grace died in 1973 and Ivalee and Glenn were married in 1979. Glenn received a certificate for 33 years of service to the Economics and Sociology Departments. He worked at Kansas State University from 1933 to 1971 when he retired.
Elizabeth Bliss Garzio Endowment Scholarship in Social Science: Amanda Baliff
The Elizabeth Bliss Garzio Endowment Scholarship in Social Science was established by the late Professor Emeritus, Ang Garzio, to honor his former wife, Elizabeth (Betty) Bliss Garzio. Betty, a retired social worker, devoted much of her life to the care of their developmentally disabled son, Eric, who lives and works at Big Lakes Developmental Center here in Manhattan. The award is given to a senior who has earned academic merit and who has the potential and likelihood to pursue graduate education in social work.
