The Gloria Segueda Softball Scholarship at Michigan State University celebrates a wonderful woman and athlete who was passionate about softball and loved the competition and camaraderie of team sports. She was also deeply committed to her hometown, Lansing, and MSU, where she was a devoted member of the staff at University Advancement for fourteen years. Gloria's family and friends invite you to honor her memory by supporting this new scholarship that bears her name, a fitting tribute to a remarkable person.
It is an understatement to say that we will miss Gloria. She really loved MSU and showed it every day in the quality and integrity of her work, her respect for the alumni and donors with whom she interacted, and the care, support and unflagging good humor she shared with her teammates. As a worker and as an athlete, Gloria thrived on the team ethic and fought to stay a part of us and return to MSU through some of the most harrowing medical challenges imaginable. We've never seen anyone fight harder, with more determination, to recover her health through sheer force of will. Her example is an inspiration.
