As President of the Rural Sociological Society, Daryl was instrumental in founding the Diversity Travel Scholarship Fund which enabled graduate students from around the world to participate in their discipline’s professional organization. Providing graduate students from many cultures and backgrounds the opportunity to interact with other Society members as professional peers both sparked a vibrancy within the organization and ensured a sociologically diverse academic cohort, while enabling lasting collegial student-faculty relationships beyond the department level.
There could be no more fitting memorial to Daryl’s professional legacy than to continue the RSS Diversity Travel Scholarship Fund in his honor.
