Many readers wrote in to identify the Falconettes, Seattle Pacific’s longest-running female service organization, and their advisor, Janet Burns Buck ’55, professor emerita of mathematics. Alumnae Falconettes maintain strong ties to SPU, participating in service projects, praying for missionaries, and supporting current Falconettes through scholarship endowments.
It’s no surprise, then, that many of our respondents were Falconettes themselves, including our contest winner, Barb Goodwin ’74, a former president of the club. Congratulations, Barb!
