In 2009 the U. of I. Alumni Association honored Stoll with the Constituent Leadership Award in recognition of her outstanding service to her school and the U. of I.
The Moms Association, established in 1923, is believed to be one of the nation’s oldest parent organizations. The association supports programs, services and activities that promote the health, safety and well-being of the university community and serves as the parent liaison to the campus.
