Ann Coyne, PhD, MSW, has received the Lifetime Achievement Award. Dr. Coyne, a professor of social work at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) and a founder and consultant for the Nebraska State Foster Care Review Board, is being recognized for her contributions in Nebraska and internationally to help children. Dr. Coyne established a sister relationship with the Universidad Nacional Autonoma de Nicaragua (UNAN), in Leon, Nicaragua, to help the university develop its own social work curriculum. UNO social work students work with UNAN-Leon students and faculty and often travel to Nicaragua to offer aid after natural disasters. In addition, Dr. Coyne has helped many special needs children in orphanages get medical attention and find adoptive homes through her work with the Omaha Rotary Club.
