Jon Pritchard

Program: MBA


Hometown: Spokane, WA USA

Why I Chose Gonzaga: The choice was simple: either enrich my knowledge base to reshape my career trajectory through higher education or settle for the status quo. Wouldn’t we all agree that an endearment for culture, passion, professional development, ideas, and strength are all aftereffects of a fervent community? Truth be told, Gonzaga’s Graduate Business program has yielded all of the above in my search for a greater education community. Do I regret my decision in pursuing Gonzaga? Don’t count on it.

Future Aspirations: Give every morsel of energy I can to a business in the Spokane or Seattle area that values innovation, creativity, technology, community, and growth. Yet above all that, I strive to be an ever-loving/ever-courageous Father, husband, leader, follower, man, and servant.

Marilyn Shanks-Dizard

Program: MBA


Hometown: Seattle, Washington

Why I Chose Gonzaga: I chose Gonzaga because of the community that is created by the students, professors and administration. Gonzaga strives to bring out the best in an individual, and with a Jesuit education, students can be confident that they are prepared to take on whatever challenges life may present.

Future Aspirations: With an undergraduate degree in Philosophy and a future MBA, I would like to focus on the critical thinking side of business. Although I am unsure of where my particular calling is, I aspire to be a steward of Business; I aspire to make the world a better place.
