Giving others an opportunity

Steven Frey works to ensure others have the opportunity to attend graduate programs at S&T like he did. Frey says that he was only able to attend graduate school – he earned a master’s degree in physics in 1986 – because of a teaching assistant position and an anonymous donor.

“My master’s degree really differentiated me from others looking for jobs when I graduated,” says Frey.

Frey is now a member of the Order of the Golden Shillelagh donor recognition society and has also given to the physics development fund. He currently works as a principal systems engineer at L3 ISR Systems.
