Hi!  My name is Patty Fugitt and I am a Retention Specialist with TRIO STEM.  I have a BS in Education and an MS in Family Studies and Human Services.  My very first job was with a TRIO program (Educational Talent Search) in 1996 and I have continued on with TRIO for most of my career!

I work primarily with students that are interested in the STEM fields – academic advising, goal setting, Financial Aid advising, and advice on just getting through college!!!

When not at work, I am usually at home with a book in hand or answering to my cat, Harper Lee.  I also am a Netflix junkie, Nebraska Cornhusker fan (GO BIG REDJ), and always have a coffee nearby.
