The Distinguished Alumni Award recognizes a graduate who is making or has made an outstanding contribution to the public service or environmental science professions. It is the school's highest accolade for graduates viewed as exemplars in their fields.

Schmoll, a native of Fort Wayne, Indiana, was chosen "in recognition of her tremendous work in public service." Dean Astrid Merget presented the award to her on May 5 in Bloomington, Indiana.

"I got a great education at Indiana University," Schmoll says. "Getting this award brings back wonderful memories, and I'm very flattered and honored by it."

Schmoll has been at UCAR since 1997. She is responsible for the organization's financial, contractual, human resources, and administrative functions. From 1993 to 1997, she was comptroller at the Environmental Protection Agency. Before then, she worked in NASA's Office of Space Science and Applications. In addition to holding a B.S. in public administration from Indiana University, Schmoll is a graduate of the Harvard Business School Advanced Management Program.
