The University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) flag will be lowered on Thursday, Jan. 20, in memory of UNO retiree Angela Valle.
Angela passed away on Dec. 25, 2021, at the age of 85. Angela began working at UNO in 1969 as a professor in the Foreign Languages the Department for more than 30 years, retiring as a Professor Emeritus in 2007.
In addition to teaching Spanish and Latin American literature, culture, and language, she was a graduate faculty fellow and a faculty member of International Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Latino/Latin American Studies.
Angela founded UNO’s Omicron Lambda chapter of Sigma Delta Pi in 1983 — the National Hispanic Honor Society — and served as its faculty advisor for 21 years. In 2005, the chapter changed the name of its annual scholarship to The Angela Valle Sigma Delta Pi Scholarship to honor her teaching and service.
The thoughts and condolences of the university community are with Angela’s loved ones during this time.
