    The WSC will present the award, for contributions to criminology, at a 2017 conference in Las Vegas.

    “It is deeply humbling and a true honor to receive the WSC's most prestigious award but, much more importantly, to know that I was a positive influence on an individual's career,” said Piquero, Ashbel Smith Professor of Criminology and associate dean for graduate programs in the School of Economic, Political and Policy Sciences. “There's nothing more rewarding than mentoring students in the academy.”

    Dr. Matthew Hickman, president of the criminology organization, recognized Piquero for his contributions to the field of criminology and mentoring graduate students worldwide.
