The Board of One Iowa NORTH has established the Craig W. Hickok Memorial Scholarship Fund to acknowledge Craig’s lifelong commitment to inclusion, education, support and equality in creating appropriate educational settings that are safe and individualized to meet student needs. As one who loved and supported young people, Craig was a passionate supporter of the arts, including the musical, theatrical and visual arts efforts of students. Craig was involved as an activist ally in social justice issues including racial equality, women’s rights and support of the LGBTQ community.
