Susan Nealy was an employee of FGM for 14 years. She began her career with FGM when she graduated from University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) and quickly rose through the ranks at FGM. Susan passed away in April 2000 after a long fought battle with cancer. As a way to honor her memory and her contribution to the firm and the profession of architecture, FGM established the Susan Nealy FGM Scholarship Fund endowment in 2000. The Nealy Scholarship is awarded annually to a UIC College of Architecture student who exemplifies the enthusiasm, passion and design excellence that Susan embodied.
