The Beckham Award is given to mentors who have inspired a former student to make a significant contribution to society.  According to the award’s requirements, the academic faculty member must have inspired the student to create an organization on a lasting basis that will benefit the community at large.

The former student Hoyt mentored and inspired is Kimberley Lakes, who earned her Ph.D. from UW-Madison’s Department of Counseling Psychology in 2004.

Lakes is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at University of California-Irvine. Lakes developed the Executive Function and Behavior Assessment Program, housed within the Pediatric Exercise and Genomics Research Center, which has served thousands of youth and families.

Lakes in 2008 was awarded the UW-Madison School of Education’s Outstanding Recent Graduate award.

“It was an honor to be nominated for this award, and very gratifying to be among the awardees,” says Hoyt.  “I am especially pleased to see this acknowledgment of the accomplishments of Dr. Kimberley Lakes – my first doctoral student when I arrived in Madison in 1999 – who in every way embodies the ideals of our program in cultivating rigorous science, compassionate practice and a desire to work for social justice.”
