In Memoriam: Nancy Tappan, a Sustainable Urban Planning Student

August 26, 2018
Nancy Tappan, a well-respected student in the Sustainable Urban Planning Program passed away on July 25, 2018. When it became clear she wouldn’t be returning to school to finish the very end of her program, the George Washington University awarded her an honorary master’s degree. The program and the community within it were among the most important elements of Nancy’s rich life, so she was very happy to find out about the honorary degree in hospice care, shortly before she passed away.
