2022 Mignot Award recipient announced

The Mignot Award was initiated in 2006 by the officers in the BSW student group. These students felt that beyond the faculty at the School, there were, and continue to be, many talented and dedicated individuals that have a significant impact on their BSW education. The Mignot award goes to student services professionals who provide guidance and support or doctoral student GTAs and adjunct faculty who routinely teach BSW courses. Each year BSW students choose the winner through an open nomination and voting process. The 2022 Mignot Award recipient is Kyla Bennett.

“Kyla Bennett is beyond deserving of this award. From her steadfast dedication to students’ education to her knowledge and understanding of the world, she never fails to respond to all instances with grace, humility, and intelligence. Kyla successfully creates a safe space for student learning and development that emphasizes inclusivity, lived experience, and respect. She is the essence of the School of Social Welfare program and KU is lucky to have her!” Maren Steiner, BSW student.
