The Shield Award - The Shield Award recognizes alumnae who have achieved unique and noteworthy distinctions through leadership and verifiable accomplishments in their chosen fields of professional expertise. Dr. Karla Treckel Mugler, Gamma Epsilon-Kent State, received the Shield Award in 2015 in recognition of her leadership as a powerful force in higher education and an inspiration to thousands of students across the country.

She served as dean of University College for the
University of Akron and influenced women throughout Ohio as a leader in the Ohio Women’s Network.
