Kudos: Delgado-Romero receives 2020 Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman Award
Edward Delgado-Romero, associate dean for faculty and staff services and professor of counseling psychology, recently received the 2020 Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman Award from the Elizabeth Hurlock Beckman Award Advisory Committee.
The award recognizes educators who have inspired their former students to “create an organization which has demonstrably conferred a benefit on the community at large” or “establish on a lasting basis a concept, procedure, or movement of comparable benefit to the community at large.”
“This award is special because I was nominated by former students whom I have inspired by my work at UGA over the years,” said Delgado-Romero. “They, Candice Hargons and Cristalis Capielo, have created organizations of their own based on their experiences on my research team and in my bilingual clinic. It is an amazing honor for them to nominate me and cite me as an inspiration. "
Delgado-Romero will receive a one-time award of $25,000.
