Awards and Recognition
Know someone who deserves some recognition? Nominate someone for the Gwendolyn Harrison Smith Award at HeelLife today!
The Gwendolyn Harrison Smith Community Award was established in 2017 in memory of Gwendolyn Harrison Smith, the first woman of color to attend the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the first graduate student woman of color at the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill as Mrs. Smith’s efforts to enroll in the University had a significant impact on our community, opening doors, not only for women of color but for minorities of all identities.
The Community Award shall be given to a graduate or professional student who has contributed to the greater graduate and professional community (a) by advocating for the rights of the graduate and professional student community and (b) by supporting and/or increasing the diversity of the GPSF community and organization.
Additionally, The GPSF Senate may also select one additional awardee each year to present with an honorary Community Award, that awardee either being a former Graduate and Professional Student or a current faculty or staff member who has made significant contributions in the targeted areas.
