In her own words, Meghan felt, “fitness was a tool to help people thrive.”

P.O. Box 457

Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis (CF) at five weeks old in 1975 Meghan lived each day to its fullest defying the odds of survival to experience the greatness and love of family, friends and life. The goal of her treatment was to ease the severity of symptoms and slow the progress of the disease. Each day Meghan completed a combination of therapies: airway clearance, inhaled medicines and pancreatic supplements. There were multiple hospitalizations. One day Meghan would be an inpatient and the next day playing third base on the softball field.

BRONZE LEVEL—$100 • Placement of business name on event website and t-shirt

Every fall the Meghan’s Light 5K/Family Fun Walk takes place on the grounds of Look Memorial Park in Florence, MA. The park comes alive with runners and walkers of all ages to honor the memory of a beautiful soul Meghan Hukowicz Zoll. Meghan’s Light 5K/Family Fun Walk raised over $75,000 in its first two years.

Meghan traveled to Ireland, Mexico, Morocco, Switzerland, Poland, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, th Netherlands and attended the University of Turin in northern Italy. She visited St. Lucia, St. Thomas, St. Croix, St. John, Paradise Island, Antigua and the Dominican Republic but her heart belonged to the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

Cystic fibrosis is a progressive, genetic disease that causes persistent lung infections and limits the ability to breathe over time.

Miguel Divo, MD, Brigham and Women’s Hospital Pulmonary and Critical Care, Medicine, and Lung Transplant Team

As a child Meghan was always athletically inclined: dance, gymnastics, softball, skiing, swimming and equestrian. Meghan played varsity field hockey, softball and basketball and was the goalie on her college field hockey teams. She loved to sail, hike, bike and work out. Meghan never let CF define her. She was in charge of her life and CF sometimes just caused a bump in the road. Seeing the glass half full not only made Meghan happier, it made her healthier.

PLATINUM LEVEL—$1000 • Bronze, Silver & Gold Level benefits plus large logo on event website, medium logo on event t-shirt, and opportunity for corporate display in prime location

Annual 5K/Family Fun Walk

“Meghan’s life is the example of love, tenacity and the joy of making the most of every day. Surrounded by her wonderful family and friends she always reminded me how life and loved ones are precious. It was always an honor and privilege to care for her and meet her family and friends. My prayers and thoughts are with all of you.”

Meghan completed the Web Design and Development Certificate Program at Boston University and worked toward her MBA at UMass/Boston and Framingham State. Upon completion of her marketing internship for the Boston Celtics Meghan worked full-time in marketing, real estate and property management in the Boston area.

GOLD LEVEL—$500 • Bronze & Silver Level benefits plus medium logo on event website, small logo on event t-shirt, and post race announcements

Meghan’s Light, Inc. was approved as a 501 (c) (3) by the IRS on September 30, 2016.

In people with CF, a defective gene causes a thick, buildup of mucus in the lungs, pancreas, and other organs. In the lungs, the mucus clogs the airways and traps bacteria leading to infections, extensive lung damage, and eventually, respiratory failure. In the pancreas, the mucus prevents the release of digestive enzymes that allow the body to break down food and absorb vital nutrients.

Meghan graduated from The MacDuffie School in Springfield and attended Hartwick College in Oneonta,NY before transferring to Elms College in Chicopee where she earned her Bachelor of Arts degree.

SILVER LEVEL—$250 • Bronze benefits plus medium text placement on event website, placement on event t-shirt, FaceBook post announcing sponsorship with links to sponsor Facebook page and website

Friends and family were devastated by her loss and came together a few months after her funeral to celebrate her. The December 2014 meeting evolved into Meghan’s Light whose mission is to support finding a cure for cystic fibrosis and to inspire hope and courage in patients, families and communities impacted by the disease. Meghan’s Light remembers the light without and the light within that radiated from Meghan during her earthly journey and the continued presence of her light that shines brightly today.

Meghan’s Light commemorates the life and legacy of Meghan Hukowicz Zoll. One day after her 39th birthday in September 2014, Meghan succumbed to cystic fibrosis (CF) after a valiant 78-day fight against the disease in the ICU at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. Meghan was a mother, wife, daughter, daughter-in- law, soul sister, niece, cousin, godmother, friend and colleague. Meghan lovingly inspired family and friends by her courage, strength, and determination in her day-today battle against CF for 39 years. She was feisty, radiant, warm and caring.

Meghan married Frank Zoll and settled in Shrewsbury. She became an incredible Mom to their son Brady. Meghan had an infectious laugh, a warm smile and a playful sense of humor. She loved life and people inspiring family and friends by her courage, strength, and determination. She coached and tutored and mentored. Meghan remained active to the end and had plans to go to Martha’s Vineyard with College friends for an extended weekend on the final day that she was hospitalized. Instead she was admitted to the ICU at Brigham and Women’s in Boston where she died 78 days later.

According to the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation Patient Registry, in the United States: •

More than 30,000 people are living with cystic fibrosis (more than 70,000 worldwide).

Approximately 1,000 new cases of CF are diagnosed each year.

More than 75 percent of people with CF are diagnosed by age 2.

More than half of the CF population is age 18 or older.

STUDENT WORK Classes taught from 2012 - 2016

Holyoke Community College Graphic Production Computer Graphic Design: Illustrator Commercial Art I Commercial Art II


Student work: This project was to create a new stamps for a ficticious place. They were assigned to write a description of their “new nation� and explain what this nation was know for. Students were to choose one medium and create 4 different stamps. Medium choices were colored pencil, colored markers, colored construction paper and ink.

Pomegranate was this nations fruit. Prisma colored pencils were used.

This nations capital was Atomic City. Colored markers were used.


Student work: Flowers were the theme of this nation. People liked to walk through the beautiful flowers. This was created using colored paper. This process took a great deal of time to get the desired look.

The layers of colored paper show how they cared for the flowers by watering them.


Student work: Two projects are shown here that were done by hand. This first one, at the top of the page was to come up with a new alphabet using colored pencils or markers. They had to carry the theme throughout the entire alphabet. Keeping consistent style, size and texture. The second project is the annual Pulp City cover done in pen and ink.

This project was to create a new state mascot along with a state game and bumper sticker. The idea was to have fun while learning Illustrator. After they were assigned a state, students looked up different facts that pertained to the state to create their theme. They drew the mascot using only illustrator. The state game allowed them to use the skill of 3-D design in Illustrator. The theme was to keep it family friendly. Finished projects were mounted on black foam core.

In this project, the assignment was to recreate a movie poster using Illustrator. Many students struggle with Illustrator, but I found that when you bring familiarity and fun to the projects the students, not only grasp the software, but love the software program. Everything was drawn in Illustrator from scratch. Live trace was not an option for any of my assignments.

In this project, the assignment was to create a brochure called Animal Logic. The students were to choose an animal to represent. Once the students chose an animal they would get information on their animal and choose an experience for people to interact with them.

Polar Bear Training This brochure was created with Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign.

Care & Conservation Animalogic’s Current Goal Polar bears range throughout the Arctic in areas where they hunt seals at openings in sea ice called leads. Five nations have polar bear populations: the United States (Alaska), Canada, Russia, Greenland, and Norway. Polar bears are the world’s largest non-aquatic predators. They top the food chain in the Arctic, where they prey primarily on ringed seals. Adult male polarw bears weigh from 775 to 1,200 pounds. A few weigh more than 1,200 pounds, but they would be exceptional. Females normally weigh 330 to 650 pounds. It’s not uncommon for female polar bears preparing to enter maternity dens in the fall to weigh over 600 pounds. Females usually bear two cubs. Single cubs and triplets also occur depending on the health and condition of the mother. Cubs stay with their moms for up to 2-1/2 years.

Anything they want! But ringed seals are their favorite food. They eat bearded seals, too. When there are plenty of seals, polar bears like to eat only the fat. They leave the carcass for scavengers, such as arctic foxes, ravens, and younger bears. Sometimes, polar bears kill and eat walrus and beluga whales. They’ve even been known to hunt shortlegged reindeer and snack on birds, bird eggs, kelp, and beached whales. On Norway’s Svalbard Islands, polar bears were once found feasting on a 350-yearold bowhead whale carcass uncovered by a retreating glacier. What is the polar bear’s place in the food chain? Right at the top of the arctic food chain. Polar bears balance nature by preventing an overpopulation of seals. What is a polar bear’s life span? In human terms, not very long. In the wild, polar bears live an average 15 to 18 years, although biologists have tagged a few bears in their early 30s. In captivity, they may live until their mid- to late 30s. Debby, a zoo bear in Canada, lived to be 42. How many cubs do female bears have? Twins are most common, but they can bear singlets or trip-

lets depending on their condition. They give birth to their first litter when they are between four and eight years old—most frequently at five or six. Polar bears have the one of the slowest reproductive rates of any mammal, typically producing only five litters in their lifetime. When and where are the cubs born? In November or December in snow caves called maternity dens. After feeding heavily in April or May, females that have mated dig a den in late October or early November. Most choose den sites in snowdrifts along mountain slopes or hills near the shore. Some dig their dens in snowdrifts on the sea ice. What do newborn cubs look like? Like a big, white rat. At birth, cubs are 30 to 35 centimeters (12

“In the wild, polar bears don’t really box, he’s special though.” to 14 inches) long and weigh little more than half a kilogram (about one pound). They are blind, toothless, and covered with short, soft fur. They are completely dependent on their mother for warmth and food. When does the family emerge from the den? In March or April. During her time in the den, the mother does not eat, drink, or defecate. Cubs grow rapidly, thanks to the calories in their mother’s rich milk, which is about 31% fat. In their first year of life, cubs are called coys, which stands for cubs of the year. How long do the cubs remain with their mother? Until they’re about 2-1/2 years old—although some bears in the Hudson Bay area wean their young at age 1-1/2. During this time with mom, they learn how to hunt and survive in one of the earth’s harshest environments. Between the time they leave their mother and they are mature enough to mate, they are called subadults.

Teaching Philosophy

A D

I feel that a teachers job is to instill the appropriate lessons that can be carried on through-out the student’s life. As a teacher I have always tried hard to treat each student as an unique individual, finding their strengths and weakness and assist them to move ahead in their goals. It is important to provide as much individualized attention as possible, to help them to recognize the talents that they have to offer and show them how to use this to help their peers in the classroom setting. Each project assigned will receive constructive feedback from their peers through full class critiques. This allows everyone the opportunity to comment upon the variety of approaches to an assignment, and it allows me as the teacher to evaluate their work. Critiques are very important to exemplify the importance of collaboration which will carry over with them in work and life situations. As the semester progresses students are allowed to dive deeper into the creative process and they feel more confident in the ways in which they got there. That confidence is shown through their comfort in techniques and classroom critiques. I feel that it is important to work with the students after the critiques to discuss where they felt they excelled and where they felt they could enhance their overall design or presentation. As a professional in the Graphics field I like to share my expertise, using real world projects and experiences to give them a feel for the competition and many methods used in presentation and processes. I emphasize to my students to work and communicate with each other to open up a variety of possible views, discussions and outcomes to make them realize the ideas for design are endless. At the end of the semester, I like to set up an appointment with each student to go over their work and discuss how they progressed. My evaluation looks at their individual progression from the beginning of the semester to the end. Before ending the semester we discuss their plans for the next semester in education or employment.
