Chris and Anne McCaffrey


Anne Ulrich met Nazareth basketball star Chris McCaffrey on her first day on campus in 1985 and they have now been married more than a quarter-century. Chris is the president of Ulrich Signs in Lockport, N.Y. and Anne serves as a Nazareth trustee and president and CEO of Eastern Niagara Health System.

"Nazareth prepared us well for our careers," says Chris, citing the public speaking skills, writing skills, and appreciation for community service they learned in college. "We owe it to try to help current students," says Anne, "and so we give in an unrestricted manner, letting the school determine its needs at any given time."
