Meet the 2023-2024 Alumnae Sesquicentennial Campaign Chair, Sharon Stack Morrison '87.
She comes from a long line of Ursuline graduates, dating all the way back to her great grandmother, Margaritta "Rita" Simmons Lovelace, Class of 1897.
"Ursuline has had a profoundly positive influence on five generations of women in my family," she said.
Alumnae Giving is important to her because she personally would not have been able to attend Ursuline without a scholarship.
"The lifelong friendships I've forged are priceless, the network is a village like no other, and Serviam has made a huge impact on my life, she said. "I am eternally grateful for the exceptional education I received."
