The Smith College graduate School for Social Work has chosen to bestow its most prestigious Day-Garrett Award upon Josephine Merritt Tervalon, MSW Class of 1963.
The Day-Garrett Award, established in 1978, is presented annually to one person or more who have been outstanding contributors to professional social work and who have been significant members of the Smith College School for Social Work educational community.
The award is to be given to those who, in the judgment of the Committee, have personified in their lives and service to the community the high purpose of professional service for which the school is renowned. This can include publication, teaching, administration, direct service, innovative programming and creation of policy.
The recipient is chosen by a presidentially appointed Award Committee consisting of a member of the Board of Trustees, the Dean of the School for Social Work, alumni, faculty, and a field faculty representative.
Many congratulations from HGPS on this significant achievement and recognition.
