Alumni Awards Program
2018 Alumna of the Year – Gloria Stiles
Gloria was unanimously nominated and approved by every member of the Alumni Board to be your 2018 Alumna of the Year. Additionally, the board made a decision this year to direct annual giving to a scholarship in her name. The Gloria J. Stiles scholarship was funded in honor of Gloria’s ongoing and unwavering service and commitment to Lourdes University. Students eligible to receive the scholarship must be a senior in good academic standing who has exemplified the Lourdes University mission, demonstrated a commitment to the University, and served as an active participant on campus. Ultimately, we hope that those who receive the Gloria J. Stiles scholarship will be good stewards of their education, active in civic and community engagement, embody the Franciscan values, and positively represent the University, just as Gloria has.

The criteria for Alumna or Alumnus of the Year is that the nominee demonstrates Lourdes’ values of learning, reverence and service and that they are giving of their time, talent and treasure to support the mission of Lourdes University.
