Recipients of the Alicia L. Smalley Memorial Scholarship for Social Justice shall be pursuing a Bachelor of Social Work degree and be in their final (senior) year or pursuing a Master of Social Work degree. Alicia grew up in Henderson, earned her BS in Social Work from Arizona State University in 1974, and moved to Carson City after graduating to begin working for the State of Nevada. She was a long-time advocate for the causes of social justice and equality among people and supported diversity in our communities and lives, a loving mother and public servant, a foster parent for a number of children, and served on the Douglas County School Board for 10 years. In 1995, Alicia earned her MS in Social Work from the University of Nevada, Reno, worked as an intern in the offices of Senator Carole Mosley Braun of Illinois in Washington, DC and went on to serve as the Field Work Coordinator in the School of Social Work at UNR. In 2006, Alicia passed away only 14 months after lymphoma symptoms began. At the time, she was making progress on her PhD dissertation in social work at the University of Utah.
