On the occasion of her retirement from Auburn University in 2014, students, colleagues, friends, and family joined together with the AAA Foundation to honor Judith Blumsack, PhD, with a named scholarship. In addition to her long career as an audiology professor, mentor, and clinician, Dr. Blumsack is a former member of the Foundation Board of Trustees, making her scholarship an especially fitting tribute to an individual that has inspired and touched many over her 30-plus-year career.
