Paying it Forward
Melanie Muscar '04, MBA '07, M.A.'18 puts her support where her heart is--the Hood college ring.
Preserving tradition one Hood ring at a time
Melanie Muscar ’04 is admired for many titles: Foreign Affairs Officer with the State Department, Lieutenant Commander in the Naval Reserves and a three-time Hood degree recipient. Melanie is also a member of both the Alumni Executive Board and Board of Associates and was inducted into the Hood College Athletic Hall of Fame in 2010. Less well-known may be her role as faithful financial supporter of Hood’s Legacy Ring and Scholarship program, which gives junior and senior Hood students the opportunity to apply for and be awarded either a Legacy ring or a ring scholarship. This program also is funded solely through alumni contributions, either monetarily or through the donation of previously worn Hood rings.
