Special Notes

Angie Hambrick is the Director of the Diversity Center at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA. She graduated from UW-Eau Claire with a degree in communication and completed her master's degree at Southern Illinois University-Carbondale.

Angela Pittman Taylor, also a communications graduate, received her master's from UW-Milwaukee. Angela is the vice president of public relations for Robert W. Baird & Co. in Milwaukee.

The two women were friends in college and have remained close since graduating. As students, they were active in multicultural activities on campus and were passionate and dedicated student leaders in the areas of inclusion and social justice. They are working to engage other multicultural alumni to support this collective scholarship effort as a visible testament to their desire to 'pay it forward' by encouraging current and future students to find their voices and be leaders for change.
