Alicen Lewis ’15

2020 Volunteer of the Year

Scripps College recognizes and appreciates the importance of the ongoing commitment, dedication, and leadership of its alumnae. The Volunteer of the Year award recognizes an alumna for her commitment, dedication, leadership, and exceptional volunteer service on behalf of Scripps College. This award will be given at Convocation during Reunion Weekend. Read about past recipients here. 

Originally from Arcadia, California, Alicen Lewis graduated from Scripps College with a degree in Digital Media Studies and a minor in Psychology. During her time at Scripps she worked extensively in technology, leading the Scripps IT for Faculty team and helping students prepare for careers in the tech industry.

正规365体育投注After graduating from Scripps, Lewis joined software company Laserfiche as a project manager. Inspired by Laserfiche’s status as a tech company founded by a woman of color, she continued her efforts in mentoring both Scripps students and other young women in tech, working towards her dream of making tech more accessible to marginalized groups. During her time in Los Angeles she also acted as the Scripps Regional Associate for the area, hosting regular events for Scripps and building the community through a Facebook group and website hub.

正规365体育投注She currently works as a Creative Strategist at Twitch, a livestreaming platform dedicated to all things gaming and pop culture. She has expanded her interests to include diversity in gaming and esports, and regularly volunteers as a gaming mentor for the Women in Games UC Berkeley program, as well as volunteering career advice through New Door and Adjacent Academies. Lewis recently took on the role of Chair of the Communications Committee for the Scripps Alumnae Leadership Council, and highly recommends you reach out to her if you have any suggestions or feedback on the best way for the college to reach out to you!

Eun Ji Chung ’06

2020 Outstanding Recent Alumna

The Outstanding Recent Alumna Award was established in 1992 to honor an alumna still in the early stages of her life’s work, but who nonetheless has “used her Scripps education in the quest for personal excellence; demonstrated a willingness to seek out challenges and take risks; and has maintained loyalty to the Scripps community.” The award each year is presented during Reunion Weekend. Read about past recipients here.

正规365体育投注Eun Ji Paige Chung Yoo is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California and the Karl Jacob Jr. and

正规365体育投注Karl Jacob III Early Career Chair. Her laboratory harnesses molecular design and self-assembly to develop biomaterials that can be utilized in medicine. Specifically, since starting her research program at USC, her lab has been particularly focused on developing biomimetic nanoparticles that can carry drugs to diseased cells and tissues found in atherosclerosis, polycystic kidney disease, and prostate cancer, while minimizing off-target and adverse side effects that plague drugs currently used in the clinic.

Dr. Chung received her B.A. with honors in Molecular Biology in 2006, her Ph.D. from the Department of Biomedical Engineering from Northwestern University in 2011, and her postdoctoral training from the Institute for Molecular Engineering at the University of Chicago. Due to her work on nano-biomaterials for clinical applications, she has been recognized by the National Institutes of Health K99/R00 Pathway to Independence Award (2014) and the Director’s New Innovator Award (2018) which provided over $3 million dollars to support her work, and was named 35 Under 35 from the American Institute of Chemical Engineers (2017), an Emerging Investigator in Biomaterials Science (2017), Young Innovator in Nanobiotechnology from Nano Research (2018), Emerging Investigator from the Journal of Materials Chemistry B (2019), New Innovator from IEEE-Nanomed (2019), and Rising Star in Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering from BMES (2020), among others.

正规365体育投注As an undergraduate at Scripps, Dr. Chung worked under the guidance of Dr. Emily Wiley to understand the function of novel proteins found in pond organisms called Tetrahymena. She attributes much of her love and foundation in research, science, and education to those early years. Looking ahead, she’ll continue to pursue translating innovations and discoveries in the lab, in hopes of providing better solutions for patients.

Anne Maltman Campbell ’70

2020 Distinguished Alumna of the Year

First presented in 1978, the Scripps College Distinguished Alumna Award was established to celebrate the notable achievements of Scripps alumnae and to focus attention on Scripps’ role in the education of women. The award each year is presented during Reunion Weekend. Read about past recipients here.

Anne Maltman Campbell devoted her forty-year career to public education. She began by working with middle school students, serving as a language arts/social studies teacher, counselor, and principal. Ms. Campbell became Superintendent of the Belmont-Redwood Shores School District in 1997, a post she held until 2003 when she became Superintendent of the Portola Valley School District. In 2010 she was elected San Mateo County Superintendent of Schools and was re-elected in 2014. Ms. Campbell retired in 2018.

As County Superintendent, Ms. Campbell strongly supported expanding access to quality early care and education. She helped launch The Big Lift, a countywide effort to ensure all 3rd graders become proficient readers through access to two years of quality preschool, inspiring summer enrichment activities, school attendance, and family engagement. She has also been an advocate at the state and national levels for Environmental Literacy. Ms. Campbell co-chaired the Superintendents’ Environmental Education Collaborative, a nation-wide network of superintendents whose goal is to provide high quality environmental education to students throughout the United States. She also served on State Superintendent Torlakson’s Environmental Literacy Steering Committee.

正规365体育投注Ms. Campbell currently serves as President of the San Mateo Rotary Club and is a co-founder of Every Kid, Every School, a multi-generational cross-cultural grass-roots effort focused on increasing public awareness of and support for well-funded public schools for every California student.

Ms. Campbell is an avid travel buff, always makes it to Book Group, and is a devoted Stanford Women’s Basketball fan. She is married, with four children, two grandchildren, and another grandbaby arriving soon.
