Courtney Jones, a master’s student in the School of Social Work at Texas State University, has been selected as the 2013 recipient of the Vera Paster Award from the American Orthopsychiatric Association.

This award is given annually to honor a student in the mental health disciplines whose achievements have been exemplary in promoting the well-being of ethnic minorities in the U.S. The $500 award will help with the development of programs that assist children in foster care and graduates of that system.

The award will also be presented to Jones at the Greenville Family Symposium, co-sponsored by the American Orthopsychiatric Association, in Greenville, S.C. on April 10-12, 2013.
