Shield of Loyola

Save the Date: The 2015 Alumni Gala will be held on Saturday, November 14 at the Hyatt at Bellevue, Philadelphia. Register online.
The Shield of Loyola, the University’s most prestigious honor, is awarded annually to a distinguished alumnus or alumna who has had remarkable success in his or her profession, whose life reflects the values of St. Ignatius Loyola, and who has demonstrated unparalleled loyalty to Saint Joseph’s University. It is presented at the annual Alumni Gala.

The recipient of the 2015 Shield of Loyola, Anthony A. Nichols Sr. '67 is Chairman Emeritus of Brandywine Realty Trust, one of the largest, full-service, integrated real estate companies in the nation. A former Trustee of Saint Joseph's University, Tony is also a co-chair and founding member of the SJU Real Estate & Construction Alumni Chapter and was the chapter's inaugural Lannon Award recipient. He is also a committee member for the President's Cup Invitational, a golf outing that helps raise scholarship funds for the University's presidential scholars.

Proceeds from the Alumni Gala support our students through the Shield of Loyola Scholarship Fund. For more information about sponsorship opportunities, please call Georgette Hamaty at 610-660-3286 or email ghamaty@sju.edu.
