Warch Center Donors Profile: Cynthia Stiehl

Cynthia (Cyndy) Moeller Stiehl graduated from the Lawrence Conservatory of Music in 1989 with a degree in music performance. She has been an integral part of the Lawrence community ever since, using her leadership, philanthropic, and musical talents to reach out to Lawrence and its surrounding communities in Northeastern Wisconsin. Following her graduation from Lawrence, Stiehl taught voice at the Lawrence Academy of Music.
Stiehl is a strong supporter of Lawrence University’s northern campus and is a member of the Bj”rklunden Advisory Committee. Stiehl has served on Lawrence’s board of trustees since 1992 and is now trustee emeriti. She is proud to be a donor for Lawrence’s Warch Campus Center and looks forward especially to “seeing the dining facilities … and how it fits into the hillside,” she said.
“The campus center is going to be a huge step towards updating us,” said Stiehl. “Having a central spot where everyone can gather that is beautiful, up to date, and brand new, will benefit all of the students.”
Stiehl has chosen to remain close to Lawrence because she loved the Lawrence experience while she was here and feels like she owes so much to it. When asked about her memories of Lawrence, Stiehl said, “The music majors will understand that sometimes I wished I just had a cot in the conservatory, it was sometimes hard to believe the rest of campus existed. I loved my time in the conservatory.”
Stiehl advises current Lawrentians to enjoy all aspects of the university. “Take advantage of the artistic offerings, both in performance and visual arts; take advantage of the fitness center and the athletics, and make use of all of what Lawrence has to offer because it is such a special place.
