Elizabeth Malott became a Regent of The Lincoln Academy of Illinois in 1978. An extraordinary woman who combined keen insight, limitless energy and elegance, Ibby’s extensive involvement with and leadership of the Academy greatly influenced and furthered its mission. Her husband, Robert, now retired as the CEO of a major Chicago based company, received the Order of Lincoln at the Academy’s 1994 Laureate Convocation. In memory of Ibby, the Malott Family Foundation has generously supported the Academy with funding that assists in underwriting its annual Student Laureate Convocation.

We appreciate the support of our friends. Due to printing deadlines, we may be unable to show our appreciation to all donors.
