Earlier this month ACE Board Trustee Patrizia Barone took some time out of her busy schedule to visit the University of Maryland and help contribute to “Maryland Day.”
Patrizia actually donated “Testudo” (the Terp statue seen here to the left) to the University’s College of Chemistry and Life Science.
During the weekend she also volunteered to assist with the Introductory Flag Ceremony. She and her family also set up a scholarship in memory of her father, Francesco Barone.
Here she is (photo to the left) with Garima Narayen, the scholarship’s recipient. Garima graduates this year and plans to go to Medical School.
Pat notes that with all of these efforts her goal is to "encourage people to go into the sciences and give back to support educational efforts." From all of us.. Thanks Pat for all that you do for ACE and for our communities.
