NASP Minority Scholars Present the Alumni Scholars' Tribute Award in Honor of Deborah P. Crockett


Wingfield, Robert, Lasalle, Tamika P., Proctor, Sherrie L., National Association of School Psychologists. Communique


This year's NASP convention marked the 15th consecutive year that the NASPERT Minority Scholarship Program (MSP) has awarded scholarships to exemplary racially/ethnically diverse graduate students to support their goal of becoming school psychologists. Deborah P. Crockett, PhD, NCSP, the only person of color to serve as a NASP president and the current president of the MSP Board of Directors, founded the program to help increase the representation of racially/ethnically diverse school psychologists. Since 1998, 44 students, including this year's five recipients, have received these prestigious scholarships.

As one past scholarship recipient aptly stated, "It has become increasingly apparent that alumni scholars are truly disciples of Deborah: Individuals who were once beneficiaries of the scholarship are now impactful donors spreading Deborah's message and dream."

The Alumni Scholars' Tribute Award committee, comprised solely of previous NASP-ERT MSP recipients, went to great lengths to ensure that this special award was kept a secret from Deborah, which was no small feat given Deborah's hands-on style. PAR graciously sponsored a special reception in Deborah's honor at the convention. The Alumni Scholars' Tribute Award committee also arranged for Deborah to be presented with a commemorative piece of artwork that was designed by her sister, Dr. Amalia Amaki, an accomplished artist and scholar, to accent the special occasion. In expressing her gratitude, Deborah encouraged current and past MSP scholarship recipients to continue their great work as practitioners, leaders, and scholars because the multiple dimensions of diversity represented by the MSP scholars offer unique and valuable contributions to the profession of school psychology. …
