2014 Human Development Award Recipients

Each year the Department of Human Development recognizes excellence in our graduating class by designating three departmental honors, awarded by our Human Development faculty. We applaud the following award recipients. 

Outstanding Graduate in Human Development: Salina Jimenez

The Human Development student chosen for this award is a superb scholar who has made substantial contributions to the community and/or university.  This name is forwarded to the College of Liberal Arts for consideration of the CLA Distinguished Undergraduate Award.

The Alice Hurst Award: Emily Marsh & Kathleen Shea

 This award is named after Alice Hurst, who following retirement returned to school, lived in the dorms, and graduated with her bachelor’s degree at age 72. Following graduation, she entered the Peace Corps.  She worked tirelessly to promote adult literacy both in Long Beach and in her position abroad. Alice Hurst embodies the best of Human Development.  Students who receive this award display the characteristics that made Alice special–, leadership, compassion, scholarship, determination, and vision.


Community Engagement AwardHeather Valenova Dayag
