Departmental Awards

ANTHROPOLOGY

presented by Professor Christina Leza

H. Marie Wormington Award

The H. Marie Wormington Award in Anthropology was established in 1979 by Wormington and her husband, George D. Volk, to honor the outstanding graduating senior in anthropology. Wormington, who died in 1994, was a former curator of archaeology at the Denver Museum of Natural History and an adjunct professor at Colorado College. Her own distinguished career was devoted to the Paleo-Indian period of New World prehistory, but it was the couple’s desire to recognize student achievements in the discipline as a whole. The criteria for the Wormington Award are a high academic record, notable aptitude for and accomplishment in field research, leadership, participation in the department’s programs, and dedication to the discipline of anthropology.

Recipient: Amalie Elizabeth Hipp

After receiving a bachelor’s degree in music from Northwestern University, Sabine and her husband, Paul, moved to Colorado Springs in 1947, where she obtained a B.A., magna cum laude, and an M.A. in human behavior from Colorado College. She subsequently earned an educational specialist degree from Stanford University, and became a licensed clinical psychologist in Colorado Springs, where she maintained a private practice for 30 years.
