Alumni Honored for Leadership, Service, Career Excellence

This magazine article is part of Summer 2014 / Issue 78
Reunion Weekend featured several awards presented by the Franklin & Marshall College Alumni Association. The Alumni Citation was awarded to five graduates who are distinguished in their profession, have provided dedicated leadership and service to the community, and have an exemplary record of accomplishment in a specific field of endeavor. The Alumni Medal was presented to three alumni in recognition of sustained, distinguished and outstanding service to the College.

Among those honored with the Alumni Citation was the late Victoria Ball ’71, a career counselor at Brown University. In accepting the award, Ball’s brother, Hiram Ball, said his family had a long tradition with F&M, going back to 1937, when his father attended the College.

Also receiving citations were Paul R. Brown, Ph.D., ’72, P’17, president of Monmouth University; Joan Fallon, D.C., ’79, founder and CEO of Curemark, a biopharmaceutical company; Marc Hochberg, M.D., M.P.H., ’69, professor of medicine at the University of Maryland School of Medicine; and Judith White, Ph.D., ’73, professor of cell biology and microbiology at the University of Virginia.

Nicole Teillon Riegl ’90, chair of F&M’s Council For Women, was one of three recipients of the Alumni Medal. She thanked the College for helping to shape her into the leader she is today.

“It never occurred to me to not be an involved F&M alumna,” said Riegl, who also serves on F&M’s Leadership Council and works as a postgraduate mentor and Reunion volunteer. “My commitment to the College is lifelong, and I still have much to do.”

The other recipients, F&M Trustee Stanley Levin ’74, co-chair of the Class of 1974 Reunion Committee, and Clark McSparren, M.D., ’55, who served on the F&M Alumni Board for eight years, sounded similar themes in their speeches.
