This scholarship is in memory of Lyla Flagler, who began as a faculty member at Eau Claire Normal School in 1918 as a teacher of Latin and Domestic Science. In 1940, she organized Sigma Gamma Zeta, a unique group of older women students who had either returned for further study after an absence from the classroom or who were starting college for the first time. In March 1943, Mrs. Flagler assisted other faculty in the medical training of Army Air Force Cadets in addition to her normal responsibilities.
Before her work at Eau Claire Normal, she had obtained a teaching certificate from Stevens Point Normal. By the time she left Eau Claire Normal in 1952, she had amassed more credentials, including a University of Chicago Certificate, University of Wisconsin Certificate, and a University of Minnesota B.S. and M.S. in Biological Sciences.
Her husband, Lawrence A. Flagler, was a distinguished corporate executive and international businessman, who also attended Eau Claire Normal.
