Barb and John Munson Outstanding Senior in Health Promotion Award
The Barb and John Munson scholarship was established in 2007 in honor of Dr. John Munson at his retirement. “Doc” Munson was a local and national leader in Wellness and was one of the founders of UWSP’s bachelor’s degree program in Health Promotion. As associate dean, he oversaw the construction of the Health Enhancement Center and led the integration of Dietetics, Family and Consumer Education, and Health Promotion units into what is now the School of Health Promotion and Human Development. John touched the lives of thousands of UWSP students through mentoring, teaching, and coaching. The scholarship is awarded to the Outstanding Senior in Health Promotion, selected by the Health Promotion Faculty.
