Patricia Offer Zepeda '93 has been elected to the Saint Joseph's College Alumni Association Board of Directors. A resident of Chicago, Zepeda works in financial development and fundraising at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.
"A school like SJC is unique in its size and the sense of community it fosters in its students," said Zepeda. "As an alumna, especially one who received financial support from the College, I feel strongly about staying close and remaining very involved in order to promote SJC and to keep it vital for generations to come."
Zepeda believes the education she received at SJC is as important to her now as it was the day she was handed her diploma.
"My liberal arts education informs the decisions I make on a daily basis. As a leader in my organization, my confidence stems from the knowledge that I am grounded in morality and was trained through a well-rounded curriculum."
