Westmont Magazine Luy Earns Lifetime Achievement Award
Joyce Luy, who retired in August as dean of admission at Westmont, received the Lifetime Achievement Award from the North American Coalition for Christian Admissions Professionals (NACCAP) at its national conference in June. She is the first woman to earn the award and just the fifth such honoree in the organization’s 41-year history.
Luy has served on the executive board of the NACCAP, as secretary and treasurer for the Western Association of College Admission Counselors and was the first woman to be selected Admission Officer of the Year in 1995. In addition to providing leadership to NACCAP, she spearheaded efforts to reach out to Christian high school counselors and work with them more closely. She co-founded the training program for new admission counselors and mentored women in the profession. She co-authored a workbook for students and high school counselors that assists them in their college search and provides workshops for Christian high school college counselors.
Luy announced her retirement in January after working in admissions at Westmont for nearly three decades.
