Gloria Watts, Beloved Registrar, Gets Big Send-Off 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

As registrar, Gloria endeared herself to students with a gracious manner and motherly touch. She helped them solve problems, both academic and personal. Gloria stepped in to straighten out students’ scheduling snafus, or to offer encouragement and kind words.

Ashley Lunkenheimer L’02 said she will never forget Gloria’s kindness. Ashley, who always assumed she would go to Penn Law, had hoped her father, Karl, an alumnus, would guide her through the first year. But he died suddenly a few years before she entered law school. Still mourning his loss when she started law school, it comforted her when Gloria, who knew Ashley’s father as a student, approached her on campus and started reminiscing about him. Gloria even introduced Ashley to other people who knew her father, and they shared stories with her. “It was that kind of personal touch that Gloria was unafraid to share with students, and for that, she should be well-remembered,” says Ashley.

It would only make sense if students remember Gloria, because she always remembered them, no matter how long ago they had gone to Penn Law, or how long it had been since their last visit. Daniel Markind L’83 can attest to her photographic memory.
