Greg Bardsley and Nancy both met in the student newsroom, The Orion, in the fall of 1990. Greg was the editor in chief and Nancy was a staff writer and a founding member of the Tehama Group. Their time at Chico State had an indelible mark on their personal and processional lives, thanks to the support and experience they received. They benefited from professors who believed in them and who suggested they were capable of “great things.” All these years later, Greg and Nancy continue to draw from the grace they received at Chico. They would like to pay it forward to a deserving student who might not yet realize that they are capable of many great things.
