About the Ann Stuart and Ray R. Poliakoff Celebration of Science Series

Both Ann Stuart, Ph.D., and Ray Poliakoff, wife and husband, were first-generation graduates of public higher education, and both often said it was their education that enabled them to pursue the opportunities that enriched their lives.

They both gave generously to create opportunities for young people to pursue their goals.
