Awards and Grants

The Department of Criminal Justice recently received a $25,000 contribution from the Drug Enforcement Agency’s (DEA) Survivor Benefit Fund in support of its George Montoya Scholarship. Montoya, a criminal justice major and a 1976 graduate from CSULB, was killed on Feb. 5, 1988, during a DEA undercover operation in Los Angeles. The scholarship is used to provide scholarships for criminal justice students and programs within the department. Last year the Department of Criminal Justice received $10,000 from the same organization.

The National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) recently presented John Garhammer, PhD, CSCS, NSCA-CPT with its 2004 Lifetime Achievement Award.

This award, presented at the 27th NSCA national conference, represents the highest level of acknowledgement offered by the association. The award is given to members who have at least 15 years of service to the association, have been a past member of the board of directors, and who have accumulated the necessary points to be considered for the award.
