Marguerite Barland ’60 Merit Award

Congratulations to our 2021 recipient, Paula Mahone ’80! Mahone was honored February 19 at the annual Jewell Robinson Dinner for her work as a leading Black perinatologist.

Since 2015, the Marguerite Barland ’60 Merit Award has been presented annually in honor and celebration of our first African American graduate, Marguerite Barland.  This annual award celebrates one or more alumnae/i who in her or his professional and private life has significantly contributed to the diversity of our campus community through leadership—as a mentor, role model, volunteer, or philanthropic supporter of the college. Throughout their life, this individual will have exemplified Goucher’s Community Principles—respect, inclusion, communication, service and social justice, and responsibility—and by doing so, they will have enhanced and inspired our community.
