Alice Morava '52
2001 P.E. MacAllister Distinguished Alumna Award for Service to Carroll
Leadership comes in various forms of time, talent and treasures. Alice (Crofts) Morava '52 is a loyal alumna of the school who devoted all three to her alma mater. As a student, Alice was a member of Beta Chi Theta and a founding member of Alpha Gamma Delta in 1952. She was a history major and served in student senate, Associated Woman’s Society, and was prom queen in 1951.
She was the first of her six siblings to go to college. Most notable of her time at Carroll, she met her husband Bob Morava '52. Bob was a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon, and a business administration major. Together after graduation, they built the business, Stuart W. Johnson & Co., Inc. in Lake Geneva, Wis., an equipment and supplies company to the food and dairy industries. Alice was the vice president and CEO of the company.
Active in the community, Alice served on the board of Lakeland Medical Center, Aurora Health Care Foundation, the Lake Geneva Market Advisory Board of Firstar Bank, and Gateway Technical College.
She also has been an active and dedicated volunteer with her alma mater. Alice has remained connected with Carroll serving on the Alumni Council; and in 1990, she began her tenure on the Carroll Board of Trustees. Supporting the Carroll experience has always been important to Alice, and she supported the school’s mission in any way she could.
As a member of the Board of Trustees, Alice served in many capacities as secretary, a member of the Executive Committee, and chair of the Advancement Committee. She was also instrumental as co-chair of the Gateway Campaign which included funding for the renovation of Main Hall.
Alice lives in Williams Bay, Wis., and continues to be an active alumna and member of the Board.
