Cora Parsons ’68: Caring for the Syracuse University Family

Cora ParsonsWhen Cora Parsons '68 (EDU), proud mother and grandmother, was considering her estate plans, her first priority was taking care of her family. Then, when she thought about her charitable options, family again was at the center of the decision. Both of her parents and an aunt also attended Syracuse and always spoke fondly of their years on the Hill. "My parents were able to attend Syracuse only because of the scholarships they received and I hope that my gift will help other students attend the University."

Cora's master's degree allowed her to nurture the lives of students for 19 years as a guidance counselor. Her bequest to Syracuse will help to provide for future students whose dream is to attend college. "I hope those who were given a hand, just as my family was, will consider giving back so others may enjoy the same opportunity."
