The 1992 graduate will speak at 7 p.m. March 18 in the Wallace Memorial Chapel about her experiences as an educator, administrator, wife, mother and survivor of a ruptured brain aneurysm.

Zukowski began her career teaching math and coaching swimming in Virginia and at Kiski Area High School in Pennsylvania.
