About the Wilsons
NAU alumni Nancy Spease Wilson, BS Public Planning, ’82 and Greg Wilson, BS Computer Science, ’82 recognize the power of community, connection, and engagement.
As NAU students, Greg and Nancy embraced opportunities beyond the classroom by getting involved in honors societies, advocacy groups, and spirit organizations like the Logjammers (1977 – 1985). It was these experiences that applied their learning beyond the classroom, impacting their professional and personal lives long after graduation. As members of the NAU alumni family, they are active in their community as volunteers, advocates, and philanthropists.
Understanding the transformative power of the NAU student experience and the strong Lumberjack Alumni network, they are proud to partner with NAU to launch the Lumberjacks Thrive program. Their gift supports our Lumberjacks Thrive Externship and Student Organizations and Clubs Grant Program, expanding opportunities for meaningful student and alumni engagement.
