she was instrumental in raising $8 million toward the successful completion of a $35
million goal as part of Tech’s $1 billion “Invent the Future” campaign.

of the College to find meaningful ways to serve in addition to giving financial support.
She and her staff are working to strengthen and maintain the current program and the
division as well as establishing a Planned Giving Office, reinvigorating fund raising
for the Hank Norton Center, the Hart International Plaza, the Ferrum Fund, and planning
for future initiatives such as the Centennial Campaign.
