Dr. Henry Virkler, Ph.D.



Henry Virkler Endowed Scholarship Fund:

Dr. Virkler is a beloved professor of Graduate Counseling at PBA and will be retiring at the end of the 2018-2019 academic year. To celebrate his dedicated and faithful service to PBA, his students and the counseling profession, the faculty of the School of Education and Behavioral Studies are initiating the Henry Virkler Endowed Scholarship Fund. Our goal is to raise $10,000 in contributions from PBA faculty and staff, students, alumni, friends and family members by the end of 2019. Once the endowment is established and invested, scholarships will be available for graduate counseling students each year, perpetuating Dr. Virkler’s legacy at PBA for many years to come.
