"We all benefit from a robust civil society, and we all need to put something back in to strengthen it," says Madeline "Maddy" Johnson Stein '68. It is with this belief that Stein has served as a strong advocate for Arcadia University throughout the years.
"The education I received at Arcadia opened many doors for me, and I want to help ensure that these doors will remain open for the students who follow," says Stein, who majored in History and studied abroad in London. Studying in London is one of her fondest memories of Arcadia. It also is how she met her husband, Isaac, who she quickly made a fan of Arcadia. "Every day he sees the benefits of my education," she says.
The Steins have maintained a lifelong commitment to volunteering and giving back to their community. Th ey have remained actively involved in numerous organizations throughout the years, including the Children's Health Council, Community Breast Health Project and Stanford Health Services. She is a Board of Trustees member at Arcadia University.
When At Home & In the World—The Campaign for Arcadia University began, Stein did not hesitate to get involved. She wanted to help out because of both the great opportunities she had while a student and the University's goals for the future. "I wanted to support the great work that was happening at the University, and I believe in investing in the future of the next generation," Stein says. "Plus, everyone is so committed to the vision that I love being a part of it."
She also remembers how the generosity of alumni helped her to earn an education. "I personally benefi ted from the generation of alumnae who preceded me, and I want to be a contributing part of this great tradition." By getting involved now, Stein is passing this legacy to future generations of alumni.
As for the future, Stein plans to continue to promote and work toward enhancing Arcadia's tradition of educational excellence. She also hopes to reconnect with all of her former classmates."
