Naomi Wilson awarded the Bobbe and Jon Bridge Award for Engaged Scholarship


Doctoral student Naomi Wilson received the Bobbe and Jon Bridge Award for Engaged Scholarship. This award supports Rackham graduate students who are conducting original research focused on child welfare.

“As a scholar-activist who is passionate about equity and justice within education, I am very grateful for the Bobbe and Jon Bridge Award. With this award I will be able to more fully explore the ways in which schooling is repressive towards Black youth and how Black youth both see this and respond to their experiences through their activism,” said Wilson.

A Rackham alumna, Bobbe Bridge served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court in the State of Washington. She retired from the bench in 2007 and now serves as an enthusiastic volunteer for child welfare causes in the Seattle area. She is particularly interested in how child welfare research translates into public and clinical applications.
