The Gloria Lyn Prize for West Indian Literature will be awarded annually starting in November 2014. This will be a prize of US$500 and it will go to the second year student with the highest marks in any of the West Indian Literature courses at Mona. We anticipate adding an annual scholarship when sufficient funds accumulate.
Gloria influenced many of her students both in the lecture hall and in their personal lives. She stimulated their minds in the classroom by encouraging her students to think for themselves. She offered help and advice with career choices and she "mothered" her students, particularly those who were far from home for the first time.
We hope that you will join us in keeping her legacy alive for the students who will one day excel in English and West Indian Literature and who will in turn, pass on her appreciation and love of literature.
