This award was originally the Lois Decker Loan Fund, established in 1957 by the Hyannis-Bridgewater Physical Education Alumni Association in honor of Lois L. Decker upon her retirement. It was in recognition of her outstanding contribution to the College and the Women's Health and Physical Education Department from 1925 to 1956. The fund was established to provide Health and Physical Education Majors with immediate financial assistance.
The Loan Fund was changed in 1986 to an award that is presented in memory of Professor Lois L. Decker. The award is made to a junior major of the Department of Movement Arts, Health Promotion, and Leisure Studies who has a minimum 2.7 GPA in recognition of his/her contributions to the health or dance area. This recipient is chosen by the faculty.
