In an effort to increase the number of alumni currently giving to Nazareth College, Nazareth alumna Joan Ewing '55 has teamed up with the Golden Flyer to sponsor a $100,000 challenge. If 5,500 donors make a gift in any amount to Nazareth College by June 30, 2010, Ewing will make a $100,000 gift to the College. Every contribution—in any amount—counts toward this goal. Visit go.naz.edu/ewing.

Joan herself knows a few things about rising to the challenge. Despite a passion for the arts, Joan studied chemistry at Nazareth and went on to become the first woman to complete a Ph.D. in electrical engineering at the University of Rochester in 1973. This was at a time when less than two percent of engineering doctorate recipients were women.
"I had absolutely no thoughts of being any kind of pioneer," she explains. "But I remember learning from Nazareth professors that we have potentials that can be converted into actuals."
The potential was there for Joan, and she believes the potential is there to have 5,500 fellow alumni and friends give to the College. Are you up to the challenge? We’re counting on you!
