About100 Women Wall of Honor

Sharon Brewer Scanlan

Sharon Scanlan (BS 1970 Textiles and Clothing), retired senior vice president of Sears, provided a 100 Women gift to support the Human Ecology building and renovation campaign, “in recognition of what the School of Human Ecology has meant to me personally, as well as professionally.” Her gift also recognizes the Center for Retail Excellence. Sharon, who worked at Sears for 33 years, chaired the Human Ecology Board of Visitors from 2008-2009 and previously co-chaired the Board’s Retail Program Assessment Committee. The committee’s work helped to revitalize the Kohl’s Department Stores Center for Retailing Excellence and facilitated the hiring of its first director, Jerry O’Brien in 2006.
