Dear Students and Colleagues:

Honors Director of Counseling Lovell Sevilla passed away peacefully early on August 10th, 2014. I think it is a beautiful thing that Lovey could be cared for in UCLA's great hospital with its extraordinary doctors and nurses because she was here with us at UCLA to the end and UCLA was truly a home to her. In our visits, her room was always crowded with people and we would meet up with students of ours from ten and fifteen and twenty and thirty years ago. This is the impact that Lovey has had on UCLA and on the world. She made a difference in thousands of lives and she used her vast UCLA network and her service work on the campus to bring into Honors students from all kinds of backgrounds and walks of life.

Lovey was a success story and she taught students that they could be a success, too. She was first a student here at UCLA; then an administrative person in College budget and personnel; then she came into Honors as a Student Affairs Advisor, even as she got her Master's degree and moved up to Supervisor and Office Manager. When a position came open, she joined the Honors Counseling staff where she served long and well, finally becoming Director of Counseling.

Lovey came from a military family so she loved working with Vets; she was an alumna, so she loved serving the Alumni Association and supporting the UCLA mission. She was an avid member of Samahang Pilipino and she served on the Campus Retention Committee and worked hard on our liaison with AAP. Her office, like her hospital ward, was always crowded with people and full of mentorship and love.

Lovey received many awards, of course, including the Chancellor's Diversity Award. But her real awards are immeasurable: the lives, changed for the better, of the people that she touched - her family, her students, her colleagues, her friends. UCLA and Honors at UCLA are better places because of her.

G. Jennifer Wilson, Ph.D., Asst. Vice Provost for Honors
