The late Glorian Kalil has left Ball State approximately $50,000 for the creation of a new scholarship. The Charles Kalil and Roy M. Johnson Memorial Scholarship will benefit undergraduate and graduate students enrolled at Ball State University's Miller College of Business.

The scholarship honors Kalil's father and uncle, respectively. A Muncie native and avid reader, Kalil earned her master's degree in library sciences from Ball State in 1964. She then worked as an elementary school librarian for Muncie Community Schools for 22 years.

She encouraged kids to read and belonged to the Association of Lifelong Learners. During the summers, she traveled with a group from the university throughout the U.S. and abroad. Ball State was an important part of her life, and she attended several university functions and was an early member of the Human Performance Lab.

Availability of the Charles Kalil and Roy M. Johnson Memorial Scholarship is dependent upon an award selection process established by Ball State and its academic departments.  For specifics about this scholarship, contact the Miller College of Business at 765-285-8192.
