Dr. Todd White had a passion for teaching and it was not limited to the classroom as he was also a widely published author and editor of numerous articles, journals, and books. He loved sharing his vast amount of knowledge and was genuinely concerned about his students' success. Todd was also awarded Writer of the Year by the Blade editors in 2005. Dr. White's passion, enthusiasm and excitement for learning and knowledge were infectious and palatable. His family is humbled by the honor of preserving Todd's memory in the form of a scholarship, which will allow his passion for education to continue in the field of anthropology.
