Aloian Award 2011 winners Marcel Moran and Annie Douglas

Marcel Moran and Anne Douglas

Each year, the Harvard Alumni Association (HAA) selects two students as the David and Mimi Aloian Memorial Scholars. Recipients have demonstrated solid leadership in contributing to quality of life in the Houses, traits embodied by the Aloians, who led Quincy House from 1981 to 1986. David Aloian ’49 was also executive director of the HAA. This year’s scholars, Anne “Annie” Douglas ’12, of Adams House, and Marcel Moran ’11, of Eliot House, will be honored by the HAA on October 13.

Douglas, a psychology concentrator from Philadelphia, is the Adams student mental-health liaison and played a major role in helping people cope with the death of a fellow student. 

Moran, a human evolutionary biology concentrator from Cambridge, was trip director for the HAA/PBHA Alternative Spring Break trips from 2007 to 2011, leading groups of 25 students who helped rebuild and repair African-American churches destroyed by arson and hate crimes. In Boston, he has tutored in the Mission Hill After School Program.
