Holocaust Library at Albright named after Lakins

Former Albright College trustees Edwin Lakin and the late Alma Lakin ’51 were honored in May for their exemplary leadership, service and support of Albright College. The Lakins’ names were added to the list of outstanding visionary leaders engraved on the College’s Founders Wall. Albright has also renamed its Holocaust Library and Resource Center to honor the Lakins’ lifelong commitment to Holocaust education and support of the center “For decades they have shared their time, talent, and treasure with Albright, in the process playing important roles in helping to lead the College’s development and growth,” said Albright President Lex O. McMillan III. “The Edwin & Alma N. ’51 Lakin Holocaust Library and Resource Center will stand as a fitting tribute to their tireless advocacy and outreach in raising awareness and increasing educational opportunities relating to the Holocaust.”
Full story in June Shalom.
