Albright Family Club (est. 2021)
The Albright family has a long, bright history at Moravian. The family of five, Alice, Margaret, Alma, Shirley, and Alvin, have loyally supported Moravian University and understand the importance of educating our students. Scholarships were established in each of the Albright sisters’ names to continue to provide financial aid opportunities to Moravian students.
Alice A. Albright*, Class of 1935, was the eldest of the Albright siblings and the first to graduate from Moravian. Unfortunately, Alice died at a very young age, and her family chose to memorialize her by establishing the first of the Albright Scholarships. The Alice A. Albright Memorial Scholarship Fund provides scholarships for students majoring in French or German to carry on Alice’s legacy.
Alma Albright*, Class of 1940, was actively involved in the Allentown Alumni Club at Moravian. In addition to other leadership roles, she served as an Antiques Show volunteer, a Class Correspondent, and the Class Representative for President Christopher M. Thomforde’s Inauguration. The Alma A. Albright Memorial Scholarship Fund carries on her legacy by providing scholarships to students majoring in a foreign language.
Margaret Albright*, Class of 1943, was actively involved in the Allentown Alumni Club at Moravian, holding every officer position through the years. Margaret was an Antiques Show volunteer and Class Correspondent. The Margaret L. Albright Memorial Scholarship Fund continues her legacy by providing scholarships to students majoring in business.
Shirley Albright* was the last to graduate from Moravian, with the Class of 1953. Like her sisters, she was involved in the Allentown Alumni Club and the Antiques Show. In addition, she was a Class Correspondent. The Shirley A. Albright Memorial Scholarship Fund carries on Shirley’s legacy by supporting students majoring in chemistry or natural sciences.
Although not an alumnus of Moravian, Alvin Albright is a substantial benefactor of the university and ensures that his sisters’ legacies continue through their scholarship funds. Alvin has been a consistent donor for more than 35 years and is responsible for growing his sisters’ scholarship funds every year. As the last Albright sibling, Alvin is the keeper of the family’s Moravian University memories.
The Albright family philanthropy embodies Moravian’s spirit and has enabled future generations to obtain a Moravian education. Their generosity is an inspiration to all and leaves a lasting legacy for the entire family.
