As an undergraduate at Rice, Lidya Osadchey ’81 was offered every opportunity to learn, achieve and make a difference in the world. Through Rice’s pilot Owl Edge Externship program, she channeled her experience and knowledge as CEO of ESCAPE Family Resource Center to Rice students who hope to follow in her footsteps.
"We owe it to the next generation of Rice alums," Osadchey says. "We were taught and given the best knowledge and the best models of interaction and excellence. It just seems natural that it would be upon us to set it free to the next generation.
