Lifetime Achiever: Sandra Matteucci of the Phoenix Chapter
The Winter edition of the ARCS Foundation National Newsletter, Achievements, kicked off what will be a regular article to recognize ARCS Foundation members who had made a profound difference to the organization. They have contributed their time, their talents and their resources to “Advancing Science in America,” and we salute them. Our first Lifetime Achiever article featured Sandra Matteucci of the Phoenix Chapter. Sandra joined her Chapter in 1991 and has since then been a leader and a mentor in Phoenix and on the National Board. She is currently a member of the National Council of Advisors. In the Achievements article, Sandra stated, “ARCS Foundation became my passion some 20 years ago and continues with each passing year. Looking back on two decades, one sees many changes. There is always discussion on how to better our organization. There are many lessons learned from the past, lessons that will help steer us towards ensuring lasting legacies for generations yet to come.”
