Lucyann Skvarla, a West Wyoming resident who since 1978 has served in various positions at King’s College, was recently selected to receive the Spirit of Holy Cross Award, an annual recognition by the United States Province of Priests and Brothers of the critical importance lay people play in living out the vision and mission of Holy Cross founder Blessed Basil Moreau, C.S.C., to make God known, loved and served in education, parish and mission settings.

Her current post is executive assistant to the provost in the academic affairs office. She earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from King’s while working fulltime.
