know there are more than 12,300 alumni living and working in Coconino County?
Not surprisingly, our own backyard is home to the second largest population of
NAU graduates, next to Maricopa County, with an estimated 43,000 alumni.
our appreciation for those graduates who still choose to call Flagstaff home,
we've put together a special print edition in conjunction with the Arizona Daily Sun. It
features the profiles of more than 160 alumni, sharing their favorite NAU
memories as well as current professions and employers.
Numerous local businesses (including the City of
Flagstaff - employees pictured below) helped to make this publication a reality
and we are thankful for their support. Check out the
digital edition of this publication to
catch up with classmates and rediscover old friends to visit the next time you
come to town!
Elizabeth Rock, '00 BS
NAU Fund Leadership Giving Coordinator
What do you do and how long have you worked at NAU?
I am the NAU
Fund Leadership Giving Coordinator in the Department of University Advancement.
I have the honor and privilege of visiting with NAU alumni, faculty/staff,
parents and friends. I help folks find the best way to give back to NAU by
donating their time, talent and treasure. There are so many amazing students, scholarships,
programs and departments that are in need of support. I have been in this role
for seven months.
What is your favorite memory of NAU?
It is hard to choose just one,
but I have to say that being set up on a blind date for Sigma Nu Fraternity’s
Winter Formal tops the list. The person I was set up with is now my husband and
we have four beautiful children!
What is your favorite part of working at your alma mater?
love the extraordinary people I work with and meet each day. I really
feel at home here on campus and I enjoy being immersed in such a culturally-rich environment. NAU has given me so much, and I am lucky to have the
opportunity to give back. I also love that NAU keeps the focus and
mission of the university on what’s most importa - the students.
Who was your favorite professor as a student?
I have three. All are amazing
examples to me. Charles Hammersley. He taught me that giving back is how
you find true happiness. Cindy Payne. She taught me to go outside my
comfort zone, embrace diversity and reach for the stars. Bruce Fox.
He helped me to believe in myself when I was a wee Freshman!
