Uma Moriarity, a 2014 Smeal grad who holds bachelor’s degrees in finance and accounting and a master’s in accounting, was one of six Schreyer Honors College alumni chosen to receive a 2024 Scholar Alumni Award.

Moriarity was named the Outstanding Graduate of the Last Decade (GOLD) Alumni recipient. She is a senior investment strategist and global head of ESG at CenterSquare.
The Outstanding GOLD Scholar Alumni Award is given to graduates who, within their first decade of graduating with honors from Penn State, showcase high levels of professional achievement and leadership in support of Schreyer’s mission. GOLD Scholar Alumni honorees are selected by the Scholar Alumni Society Board.

Recipients will be recognized at a luncheon to be held this spring at the Hintz Family Alumni Center. The awards are commemorated by the presentation of a replica Lion Shrine statue or a framed drawing of Atherton Hall, home to Schreyer Honors College at University Park.
