Why I Give: Lynda Floros Nadkarni ’87

The experiences I had at Elmhurst College helped form the person I am today. In and out of the classroom, I developed teamwork and leadership skills that have been pivotal in my career. I owe a debt to Elmhurst, and I feel a responsibility to give back to the places that have given to me.

My husband was still in medical school when we started our family, so we know what it’s like to pursue an education as an adult. That’s why we decided to fund a scholarship for an adult student learner. It gives us great satisfaction to know that we’re helping someone get a great education.

Lynda Floros Nadkarni teaches fine arts at Brook Park School in LaGrange Park and volunteers for several local organizations. She and her husband, Nishad Nadkarni, support the College through a scholarship fund and an estate plan.
