Diane Brown, The Christine Bilicki Memorial Scholarship
Christine Bilicki was a Chemistry Professor at Pasadena City College. She loved Natural Sciences, Travel, and Teaching. It was widely known at PCC that Christine brought out the best in her students. Even on her worst day, Christine would come to life in the classroom.
A history major at the University of Nebraska, Christine taught at John Muir High School for 22 years before joining Pasadena City College and revamping the Organic Chemistry program here.
Christine was diagnosed with Esophogial Cancer in January of 2011. She went to live in San Antonio, Texas, with her sister and nephew. Her sister, Diane Brown, was a registered nurse and donated the funds to create this memorial scholarship in her sister’s honor. The Christine Bilicki Memorial Scholarship is awarded to a student for future studies in Organic Chemistry here at Pasadena City College.
