The Milch Award, created in 1979 by Mrs. Pearl S. Milch, recognizes organizations that offer meritorious service to the Baltimore metropolitan community. Each year during the May graduation ceremony, Loyola presents the award to a community agency that has collaborated closely with the university to provide excellent community service and educational opportunities for Loyola students during the past academic year.
