A native of Colombia, South America, Dr. Mabel Eliana Lamprea grew up with extended family—the oldest of 23 grandchildren. Her parents barely finished elementary school but gave her a love for reading and learning. She began a journey that years later brought her to Gardner-Webb University, where she earned a Doctor of Education in Curriculum and Instruction and received the Darlene J. Gravett Citizen Scholar Award. The award is given to a graduate student for scholarly research that has the potential to make an improvement to society. It is named in honor of Dr. Darlene J. Gravett, long-time dean of the GWU Graduate School and Associate Provost Emerita.
