Alice Senty, a former Lakeland College Trustee and a generous friend of the institution, passed away on Sept. 29. She was 91.
Senty served as a Lakeland Trustee from 1994-2006. In 2007, the college honored her with an Honorary Doctor of Humane Letters to recognize her lifetime of civic engagement and service to her community. It was one of many honors and awards she received for her work. In 2013, she received an Honorary Alumni award.
Senty also served on the college’s church relations board for a number of years. She established an endowed scholarship at Lakeland in 2004, and she visited campus each year to meet her scholarship recipient. She was a member of the college’s Sesquicentennial Planning Committee, and was a member of the Founders’ Society and an annual member of the 1862 Society.
A lover of learning, she would often attend academic and other events at Lakeland to broaden her own circle of knowledge.
