  1. Hi Yvonne,
    You may not remember me – we both lived at the PiD house during a summer when we were both taking classes. I was the old married one with 3 kids. I remember you well as a smart fun-loving girl headed for success. At that time I believe the tech major was called Industrial Arts. And good for you – it was a man’s world then and you became very successful. So I just want to say that I was thrilled to see you in the Oswego magazine and CONGRATULATIONS on your successful career.

  2. Hello Joanne!!! Of course I remember you, and all the fun we had living in the Kingsford Mansion. It was such an honor to be the Torchlight Ceremony speaker, a full circle experience. I have been blessed in so many ways and I am full of gratitude!!

    I am thrilled that the world of technology/engineering education has expanded to include many more females. We do have a Omega Delta Phi facebook page where many more of the women you might remember are on there.

    Thank you again for your kind words,
