Roy and Betty Dulak Endowed Scholarship Award
This fund was created by The Hillcrest Foundation, founded by Mrs. W. W. Caruth, Sr. The Trustees expressed their friendship, high esteem and respect for Roy Dulak, and for the support of his wife, Betty, through the establishment of this scholarship fund in his honor.
Roy E. Dulak spent thirty years of devoted service as Executive Director of the Community Council of Greater Dallas. Following his retirement in 1979, Mr. Dulak began additional public service as an advisor and consultant to the Trustees of The Hillcrest Foundation. He played a principal role in spearheading the creation of The University of Texas at Arlington School of Social Work. As the Executive Director of the Community Council, he assigned his staff, first Dr. Peter Gaupp and later Ed Protz, to provide the necessary staff services for this effort.
The Community Council of Greater Dallas was the first community fieldwork agency for the new School of Social Work. Subsequently, Mr. Dulak came to the rescue of the new School several times in its early years by helping to organize political and other support for its budget. He served for many years on the Advisory Board of the Community Service Development Center and helped organize ongoing fundraising for the Center.
