Students Help Grow Scholarship Honoring Gayleen Smith

Gayleen Smith instinctively knew when to push a young person a little harder. She realized when a gentle nudge in the right direction could make a big difference, and was glad to provide guidance, sometimes in the form of persistent reminders. Smith’s efforts made a difference in many ways for students in the HSU Department of Forestry and Wildland Resources where she served as administrative support coordinator for half of her 14 years at Humboldt State. One of her most prominent efforts was steering them toward education funding sources that they might not otherwise secure. Knowing her passion for student success, professors Pascal Berrill and Christa Dagley decided that establishing a scholarship in Gayleen Smith’s name would be an appropriate memorial for the “Forestry Mother,” who succumbed to cancer in 2013.
