STEVE EWING, NORTHERN ARIZONA 1975 INVOLVED NAU ALUMNUS Donates $25,000 to the NAU W.A. Franke College of Business The donation went towards creating one of the thirteen interactive/flexible/break-out spaces at the entrance of the College's classrooms and computer labs. In college-speak these areas are known as "Front Porches".  The space facilitates "the interaction that often takes place among students and faculty when entering or exiting a classroom. As the term implies, the front porch is a place for students and faculty to work, converse, and regroup in-between or during classes, lectures, or events. Walls and tabletops will provide space for writing and graphic communication as well as flexibility for various data configurations and interface..”  The donation was made in the name of the Ewing Family.  Steve has been on the W. A. Franke College of Business (FCB) National Advisory Board since 2007. CLICK HERE
