The Chestnut Hill College Alumni Association announces that alumna Nancy Loving, Class of 1968, is the recipient of the 2008 Distinguished Achievement Award for her outstanding advocacy efforts in the public policy arena, which have brought hope, knowledge, and empowerment to millions of women threatened by heart disease. The Chestnut Hill College Alumni Association Distinguished Achievement Award recognizes graduates of the College who have a history of accomplishment in their business or profession or in civic, philanthropic, or other volunteer activities.

Nancy Loving’s professional and personal dedication to the well-being of women began immediately after graduation in 1968 as one of Professor John Lukács’s star history majors. Ms. Loving went on to work with young mothers with abused or neglected children, then to a residential facility for delinquent girls, and later managed a caseload of more then 300 welfare mothers in North Philadelphia. Following receiving a master’s degree in public policy and post graduate studies at the Wharton School, Nancy moved to Washington, D.C., and continued to work for women’s rights at the national level while forging her career in public relations.
