Mission Hills resident, Peggy Hanley, is the recipient of this year’s ARCS Light Award. Each year the ARCS Light award is given to a member of each chapter of the ARCS Foundation, Inc. The ARCS Foundation’s mission is to advance science and technology on the United States by providing financial awards to academically outstanding U.S. citizens studying to complete degrees in science, engineering and medical research. Since its inception in 1985, the San Diego Chapter has contributed more than $10 million to qualified students at SDSU, Scripps Research, UCSD and USD.

The award is given to a member who has displayed commitment and long-time service at the local chapter level. The recipients are honored for serving in board/ leadership positions, establishing scholar funds and collaborating with university partners, chairing special events and recruiting new members, and providing expertise in chapter operations.

Hanley was raised in New York City and completed her Bachelors of Science in Nursing at Hunter College. After moving to San Diego soon after college, she completed both her Masters in Social Work, and later a Masters in Business Administration at San Diego State University. She has extensive experience as an organization development consultant in health care, large public entities and has designed numerous executive development programs.

Hanley attended a ceremony honoring recipients from other ARCS chapters at the National Conference in Portland, Oregon in September.
