Argosy University-Denver News

This week we had the honor of recognizing two of our faculty members and two of our students with the first presentation of the Ivy & Sopko Scholarship Award. This scholarship was created to recognize the individual contributions of Dr. Maurice Ivy and Dr. Leila Sopko to the academic training, careers, and professional lives of their former and present students, appreciation of their superior instruction and steadfast mentoring of students here at Argosy University Denver.

This was the first awarding of the an annually endowed named scholarship recognizing Dr. Ivy and Dr. Sopko for their contributions to the academic training, careers and professional lives of former and present students. A grateful Argosy Denver alumnus donated scholarship funding and honorary plaques in appreciation and commemoration of all that they have done for students here. This scholarship is to be presented annually to worthy Argosy students who have demonstrated strength, breadth, depth, and rigor of academic achievements as well as intellectual promise, character, and achievement outside of the classroom.

In this Spring's presentation we had the very enjoyable opportunity to present checks for a thousand dollars each to some of our very deserving students - Elena Beal, undergrad student in BA Psychology and Gurnie Leary, doctoral student in EdD Organizational Leadership. We also presented recognition plaques to the two recognized faculty members, Dr. Leila Sopko VPAA and Department Chair of Graduate School of Business & Management Argosy University, Denver and to Dr. Maurice Ivy Adjunct Faculty Argosy University, Denver.
