He is using me benefits of the current tax law to increase dle amount of funds in this scholarship. ''I'd like the fund ro continue to grow and provide more financial aid," says Me Flower, "and this temporary change in dle law offers a good way for me to contribute to do so." Enacred lasr year, the Pension Protection Act included a number of changes and reforms in tax laws relared w charitable giving. Among (he charicable tax incentives is an IRA rollover provision thar allows individuals over rhe age of 70 1/2 to make donations up to $100,000 from an IRA without having to trear the donarion as taxable income.

5 otli ht': Alum En ineers Tina Colombo Mares J'90 It was in het sophomote Biology class with Ms. Metro that Tma Mates learned ro love science. "She so easily conveyed the technical material in a non-technical, non-threatening way," lina recaUs of her SJA teacher. She credits that samc communication style as one of the strengths she herself brings to the engineeting profession. As Manager of Business Development fOt DRS Corporation, one of the largest engineeting design and technical services firms worldwide, Tina spends a great deal of time coordinating the commu.nication between a client's needs and the professionals who will ultimately lead the design, engineering Ot construction of the solution. "This could be anything from school districrs looking to build upgraded facilities to hospitals needing to renovate space for the latest MRI equipment to industrial companies seeking more environmentally

friendly ways of disposing solid waste to municipalities looking to enhance water and wastewater treatment processes," she explains. A civil engineer with a conSD'uction hackground, Tina's most rewarding professional accomplishment to dare was being part of the construction management team for the $113 million [ntetconrinenral Hotel and Confetence Center located in Cleveland. 'The team had 24 months to complete this project from the ground up with finishes from all ovet the world," she says. "It was a unique experience, and I enjoyed every minnte." It was the variety that made the engineering profession appealing to Tlfla. "Civil engineeting opens doors to many exciring careets," she says. "Bur you must have a passion for ir because it is challenging. The passion will build the inner strength needed to move through whatever hurdles come your way."

Karen Lisowski N'74

Throughout her school career, Karen Lisowski prefetted ptoblem solving to essay writiug. "Lots of things are taken for granted," she says. "Bnt someone initially had to solve the problem and design the result." "For example, do you really have any idea how water gets to your faucet safely and reliahly?" she asks. "There's a whole mulri-step process involved." As a civil engineer with a specialty in environmental engineering, Karen began her career in design by developing plans and specifications for water and wastewater treatment plants. About 15 years ago, she got into the financial side of engineering. Today, Karen is a Consulting Engineer, managing the funding of the Cleveland Water Department's mnlri­ million dollar capital improvement program. "I like the comhinarion of engineering and finance," she says. Civil engineering is a broad term which 14

inclndes public works and structures such as bridges and roads. "I think what appealed to me is that this area involved the building of structures which you see and use every day," Karen explains. "I love the outdoors and nature, and we need to become more aware and appteciative of the environment and how we use it and protect it for future generarions." According to Karen, even in the early 70's, schools like Nazareth and Saint Joseph Academy fostered the belief that women can do and succeed at whatever men can. "That feeling and encolltagement helped me considet a non­ tradirional field for myself," she says. "My father encouraged my sistets and me as well." The most tewatding pan of the job is seeing the finished product. "To watch designs go from drawings on paper to construCted bnildings or facilities that function as planned - that's gteat," she says.

Diane Torres­

Perreault J'78

According to Diane Torres-Perreault, therc ate engineers who do it for a living, and there are "born" engineers. "Some people engirreer rheir lives, always wanting to improve something," she says. "That's me." She holds the distinction of being dle first female electrical controls engineer hired at Fisher Body Controls, formerly the manufactnring division of GM. Shc always had a talent for math, and she made the decision in her freshman year to pursue engineering. 'The suPPOrt of rhe teachers and studentS at SJA gave me rhe confidence ro attempt a field that was only 2% female," Diane says. Her father, who worlced at GM, tOld her abour General Motors Institure, a co­ op college owned by GM. Students rotated evelY 12 weeks between school and wotking at GM. "When I graduated, rhey did not want to take me because I was a woman," she recalls. It was sheer perseverance that gor het through two years of being virtually ignored hy her colleagues. As a Senior Manufacturing Engineer in rhe body shop, Diane designed, built and installed the automated rohotic welding equipment that assemhles the automotive body. "They called it the 'butcher shop' since people were known ro lose hody parts there," she says. The rohotic equipment broughr efficiency, repearability and safecy to the production process. During Diane's career ar GM (she retired in 1993), she was well known for gerring the joh done before the deadline, nnder budget, and exceptionally well. "On my last project, I was responsible for the equipment in one­ third of rhe shop, and the job was completed on time and 3% under budget, which was unheard of," she says.
