Our sweet mother Priscilla Shireen Luke was suddenly and unexpectedly called to heaven on July 11, 2023.
She was the most genuine, humble, loving and supportive person that we were fortunate to call Mom. She poured love into everyone she met and her generosity knew no limit. It is in that spirit we want to start a scholarship fund in her name.
Priscilla was a trailblazer. She was born in Pakistan and moved to the US with her family when she was a teenager. Daughter of a professor, an avid reader and a lover of academics, she studied Mathematics and French. She went on to work in Technology with a career spanning over 4 decades. She started at a time when the field was exclusively dominated by men and was repeatedly recognized as a top contributor.
Beyond her professional career, she had a strong passion for mission work / philanthropy. She consistently contributed her time and resources to support NGO's around the world.
Priscilla spread hope among her family, peers and the global community. We want this fund to be a continuing beacon of the values she embodied, most importantly her love and generosity.
