The University of Arizona

Would you like to donate to the Plaza, but currently do not know who to honor? The list of women and organizations that have contributed to the greatness of our state and to our country in general is an unending one!

-- DID YOU KNOW that Janet Bragg, who was a nurse by trade, began flying in 1933 and became the second black woman in the US ever to own a plane?

-- DID YOU KNOW that Mercedes Shibell Quiroz was one of only two women who were in the first graduating class of the University of Arizona in 1897?
