Shoreline resident Megan Chao will receive the Seattle Pacific University Graduates of the Last Decade (GOLD) Alumna of the Year award on Saturday, February 3, as part of SPU’s Homecoming weekend.

Chao, who graduated from SPU in 2009, will be recognized for her work in founding Hope for Life Ministry, which works to end youth homelessness by providing housing, education, and counseling.

She and her fellow classmate, Hilliary Anderson, founded the ministry after the end of an internship in Africa during their junior year.

The GOLD Alum of the Year is awarded to individuals who contribute to the welfare of the community, demonstrate leadership and responsibility, and pursue the Christian faith. 

Recipients of the award must have graduated from SPU within the last decade.

Founded in 1891, Seattle Pacific University is a premiere Christian university that equips people to engage the culture and change the world. 

Its comprehensive academic programs serve more than 3,800 undergraduate and graduate students. SPU is the only private university in the Pacific Northwest to make the 2018 U.S. News and World Report Best National Universities list.
