Dolores A. Albertini
Former student-athletes have endorsed a scholarship in honor of Dolores A. Albertini, a former reference and periodicals librarian at Northwest and an avid runner. She also was an outstanding master’s distance runner and enjoyed a competitive running career on the local, regional, and national scenes. One of her greatest pleasures in distance running was training with the Bearcat women’s cross country team at the coach’s invitation.
The scholarship is awarded annually to a female cross country student-athlete at Northwest.
Albertini and her husband, Virgil Albertini, who now live in Kansas City, co-authored Towers in the Northwest, a history of the University from 1956 to 1980. She sponsored Gamma Sigma Sigma, and the two sponsored several student organizations. They cherish their connection with Northwest.
Dolores earned a bachelor’s degree in English from Pittsburg State University and a master’s degree in library science from Columbia University, New York City.
