      PLEASE JOIN USC IN HONORING MARGARITA McCoy FOR HER CONTRIBUTIONS TO
      PLANNING

      This year, as in years past, the USC School of Policy, Planning and
      Development Alumni Association Board of Directors has selected three
      accomplished alumni and friends of the school to honor at the third
      annual Alumni Guardian Awards. This year, one of the three awardees
      is Margarita McCoy MPL who is being honored for her work in the field
      of planning. Proceeds from the Guardian Awards go directly to the
      SPPD Annual Fund – which supports scholarships, classroom materials,
      and other learning opportunities for SPPD students.

      Margarita Piel McCoy, FAICP, began her professional career in
      planning in 1959 as an elected member of the planning board in
      Sudbury , Massachusetts . She served as an administrator and faculty
      member in planning at USC and as professor and chair in the
      department of urban and regional planning at California Polytechnic
      University , Pomona . She retired in 1989.

      McCoy served on the American Institute of Certified Planners (AICP)
      commission from 1979 to 1982 and from 1990 to 1994, and was president
      from 1981 to 1982. She served on the American Planning Association
      (APA) Board of Directors from 1979 to 1982, and in 1986, received
      APA's Distinguished Service Award. She has also been a member of the
      Planning Accreditation Board and the Association of Collegiate
      Schools of Planning (ACSP).

      McCoy has served as a role model and mentor for women entering the
      planning field, and her work has included advocacy for women in many
      different arenas. In 1995, ACSP established the Margarita McCoy Award
      for individuals who further the advancement of women at universities
      through service, teaching, and research.

      McCoy now serves on the planning commission of La Habra Heights ,
      California , where she has lived since 1976.

      Thursday, October 2, 2008 on the USC campus. There will be a
