The Independent Association of Framingham State Alumni (IAFSA) recently hosted its annual membership meeting virtually. During the program, Hopkinton resident Susan Duponte Conway ’70 received the first annual Gloria Award, named for longtime Framingham elementary school principal Gloria Aspesi.

The Gloria Award honors a volunteer who has given their time and talents to IAFSA. Conway has been a steadfast volunteer and committee member since her graduation. She is past chair of the Amelia Davis Fund, which gives emergency assistance to alumni and sends holiday cards/monthly notes to older alumni. Prior to COVID-19, she regularly worked in the office helping with administrative tasks. Conway was selected to receive the first Gloria Award in recognition of her stellar volunteerism, quiet leadership and commitment to family.

The purpose of the Gloria Award is to honor and acknowledge alumni, like Gloria Aspesi, who have given of themselves to their families, their community and especially IAFSA over time, quietly, and in various roles without seeking praise, but by being part of the backbone which has enabled IAFSA and Alumni House to continue to serve alumni and the FSU Community.
