Alumnus Pays It Forward

Keith Ewancio

Keith Ewancio ’94/’07

Keith Ewancio, class of '94/'07, was one of the youngest members of the Tower Light Society when he became a member in 2001. At the age of 30 he was purchasing his first home and, following his parents' lead, he was considering his estate plan. As a student at Towson State University, Keith received the Minnie Sparks Memorial Scholarship and the Patrick John O'Connell Memorial Scholarship. Knowing the difference these scholarships had made in his life, Keith decided to include in his will a bequest to the Towson University Foundation. His gift will one day establish the Keith L. Ewancio Scholarship Endowment.

In addition to planning an estate gift, Keith has served his alma mater in other ways. He has worked with development staff to secure corporate funding from his past employer and encouraged leadership annual giving from colleagues and friends. Keith was presented with the Towson University Alumni Service Award in 2003. In 2004 he began a master's program and was elected to the Towson University Alumni Board of Directors. He has held many positions during his years of service. In 2010, Keith was presented with the Alumni Association Volunteer Service Award, and in 2015 he was awarded the Dean's Recognition Award for the College of Fine Arts and Communication.

"The work I do at Towson is a reflection of my commitment to giving back to the institution and people who so greatly helped shape the person I am today."
