Egan Earns Diane Geppi-Aikens Service Award, 18 Others Honored

Oct. 5, 2015

BALTIMORE - Loyola University Maryland senior Cara Egan, a member of the women's swimming and diving team, received the Diane Geppi-Aikens Service to Loyola Award this weekend at the University's Gratias Ceremony.

The award is named in honor of the late Loyola women's lacrosse coach and is the highest honor bestowed upon student leaders.

Egan, a 2014 winner of the University's Cura Personalis Award, is an elementary education major who serves as a UNITE (Urban Needs In Teacher Education) Education Ambassador; she has dedicated herself to making a difference as an educator in urban settings.

The Norwalk, Connecticut, native founded the DeWees Drowning Prevention Program that has since been renamed Junior H2Ounds. She has led her teammates in teaching Baltimore City youth the basics of swimming in order to prevent drowning incidents.

Egan is also the co-president and past vice president of Loyola's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), and she is a member of the Loyola Leadership Academy.

Haleigh Morgus, a senior on the women's tennis team, was the recipient of two awards at the Gratias celebration, and she was honored for being a part of a select group of Loyola students.

Morgus is one of 14 Loyola students who are members of the Green & Grey Society, a group chosen by their peers and University administration for their contributions and leadership abilities. The Society serves as a liaison between students and school administration.

She received the Cura Personalis Award, an honor that recognizes students who embody the Ignatian ideal of care for the whole person through demonstrated service, leadership and academic achievement.

Morgus, and three other student-athletes - women's lacrosse's Bailey Mathis and men's lacrosse's Chris Myers and Jared Mintzlaff - garnered the Magis Scholar-Leader Award. The accolade recognizes and honors students who complement superior academic performance with co-curricular involvement.
