About the award: In 1956 Mrs. Louise Troxell retired as Dean of Women, a position she held for a quarter of a century.  At her retirement, the Louise Troxell Award was established to honor Dean Troxell’s years of outstanding leadership and devotion to the cause of women on our campus.  The award is for an outstanding woman whose qualifications include intellectual ability and curiosity, good citizenship, appreciation of the world outside herself and interest in participating in its affairs.
