Realizing Potential: NSU Alumna Proves an Education Can Last Beyond a Lifetime

FischlerAlumna campaign cornerNSU Fischler College of Education alumna Bonnie Tryon, Ed.D. earned her Doctor of Education degree in 2012. She became a member of the NSU 1964 Society and NSU Fellows Society in December by making a planned gift to support scholarships for graduate students in the Fischler doctoral program.

Dr. Tryon, who has been an educator in New York for many years, and has held positions including school principal and a district administrator for instructional support, decided to apply to NSU when one of her two grown sons started working on his M.B.A. at SUNY IT Utica.  She and her husband have already endowed a scholarship in his name at SUNY Cobleskill, where he recently retired as a professor.  Their philanthropic philosophy is “paying it forward” whether it is through time, talent, or treasure.  They also love traveling and cattle farming.

“I credit NSU for preparing me well for the work I’m currently doing in the online environment,” Tyron said.

You, too, can support excellence and innovations in teaching, research, service, and learning through a legacy gift, and for a limited time, become a Founding Member of NSU’s 1964 Society. For more information, please contact Andrea Darlow, director of development for Legacy Gifts, at (954) 262-2135 or at adarlow@nova.edu.
