Dr. Leonard Morgenbesser worked for more than three decades as a researcher for the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision. Until his untimely death in March 2013, Leonard Morgenbesser was a strong anti-gun violence advocate who painstakingly cataloged the violence in the city's streets, and steadfastly challenged citizens and law makers alike to help make Albany, New York a safer city.
Leonard Morgenbesser also served the New York Corrections and Youth Services Association for over 20 years as a member of the Executive Board and as a o-chairperson of the Higher Education Committee. Leonard was committed to ensuring that the training provided to all law enforcement and correctional staff was relevant and meaningful. He worked diligently in support of his beliefs that training opportunities should be plentiful and accredited. His hard work and dedication helped to keep CAYSA in the forefront of this endeavor.
It is with great pride that NYCAYSA offers this educational scholarship each year to honor the memory of Leonard Morgenbesser.
The 2018 recipient of the Leonard Morgenbesser scholarship is Elizabeth Wambeke. Ms. Wambeke is in the Criminal Justice BA/MA Program at SUNY Albany and plans to use her award to offset the cost of registrations for the upcoming semester. Outside the academic arena Ms. Wambeke is a second-year Resident Assistant as well as the Co-President of the Presidential Honors Society. Ms. Wambeke is in her final year of the program and is looking forward to a career in the field of criminal justice.
Please join me in congratulating Elizabeth Wambeke as the 2018 recipient of the Leonard Morgenbesser scholarship.
