As one walks through the door, as one walks in, the eyes are drawn to the history and culture of our homeland all because of your attentiveness to detail - this room reminding us of home where stories were told and passed on from one generation to another.
Your Nationality Room legacy will live on. You will continue to be in our hearts.
Thank you, Maxine, for inspiring us to complete the Philippine Nationality classroom project, the newest addition to the Nationality Rooms at the University of Pittsburgh. We will celebrate your creative ingenuity and we will continue your legacy to be passed down to our children.
Maxine, you have been alongside us in all our challenges in completing our Philippine Nationality classroom, which [provide] permanent memories of how your persistence has paid off.
It was a privilege to have worked with you, Maxine Bruhns. (Philippine Nationality Room dedication, June 10 2019)
