Subject: [DIVTRIO] Beckman Award Nominations - Please forward to your division


Dear Division Trio Presidents,


Attached please find the call for nominations for the 2019 Beckman Award.  I encourage you to recommend current or former academic faculty members who have inspired their former students to “create an organization which has demonstrably conferred a benefit on the community at large” or “establish on a lasting basis a concept, procedure, or movement of comparable benefit to the community at large.” I also hope that you will pass this announcement on to your respective division listservs and colleagues. Recipients of this award receive $25,000 (taxable income) and typically people have used the award monies to further their programs and organizations or those of their mentee. Many APA members have been proud recipients of this honor over the years.


Last year (2019), 10 professors were honored at a recognition ceremony for the Beckman Award winners and their nominators in Atlanta, GA in October. To date, 104 professors have been honored with the Beckman Award (totaling $2.5 million).



The deadline for nominations is April 30, 2020 at 5:00pm EST. The application/nomination form can be found at https://www.wellsfargo.com/private-foundations/beckman-award-trust


If you have any questions, please contact me at nkaslow@emory.edu


Thank you in advance for nominating deserving psychologists.

[#DIV28SUPER] Fwd: [Div 25] Fwd: Farewell, Victor Laties

From: Nancy Feresten <nancy@ferestenconsulting.com>

Subject: Farewell, Victor Laties

Hello, loved ones,

Dad died last night, at about 10 pm, after a brief illness. We are very grateful that he went fairly quickly and without much pain, but of course we are feeling the loss deeply. Dad chose to donate his body to the University of Maryland, so there will be no burial, but we will gather informally at Mom's apartment on this Saturday the 8th from 12 to 4 pm to remember him. The address is:

10450 Lottsford Road, Apt 244
Bowie, Maryland 20721

Mom requests that you please NOT bring flowers because she is allergic. If you are feeling moved to do something in his honor, make some funny faces at the next child you see, notice the beauty of the clouds, read a book, do a little scat singing, listen to big band jazz, dance with someone you love.

Love to you all,

Nancy, Andy, and Claire

P.S. ... Charlie, please pass it along to the scientific community (we will also text Ron and Debbie).
