McMaster Sociology alumna awarded the Canadian Association of Social Workers' highest honour

The Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW) is pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2018 Glenn Drover Award for Outstanding Service is Sociology grad, Dr. Mary Valentich ’63

May 23, 2018

In 1963 Mary Valentich graduated with a Sociology degree from McMaster University. By 1976 she was a faculty member in the School of Social Work at the University of Alberta.

Valentich chose social work, in part, because of its unique focus on social justice. As an educator, researcher, and practitioner, she has made her mark, and earlier this spring, the Canadian Association of Social Workers (CASW), recognized her with the highest honour that can be bestowed on a Canadian social worker, the Glenn Drover Award for Outstanding Service.
