“I am proud to be part of a large family of engineers, but even more honored to be associated with all the women engineers my mother mentored, at all career stages, whom we consider part of our extended family.”  – Naomi Brill 

Yvonne Brill and her daughter Naomi endowed the Brill Family Scholarship in 2008.  Outside of their impressive aerospace and mechanical engineering careers, they both enjoyed mentoring younger women and encouraged them to pursue engineering.  Learn more about this engineering family and their endowed scholarship here.
