Photography by Vicky Pink - Annually the University of Houston’s Graduate College of Social Work honors those whose lives and work exemplify their vision to achieve social, racial, economic, and political justice, local to global at the Living the Vision Scholarship Luncheon. The theme and speaker reflected their commitment to social justice and their emphasis on human rights and equality as we prepare the next generation of social workers to bring about real and lasting change. Houston Chronicle’s Editor of Opinion, Lisa Falkenberg, was the keynote speaker. Barbara Mackey was given the Social Work Excellence Award and Laurie Vignaud was given the Bobbi & Vic Samuels Spirit of Social Work Award. Kudos to the Chair, Co-Chairs, and Honorary Chair Lisa Foronda Harper, Linda Cantu, Kathy Davis, and Mary Beth Arcidiacono.
