Liz Bonis Dad
Liz Bonis’s dad, Austin Bonis died back in 1981. He was a professor of statistic at RIT College of Business and was an inspiration to what she loves doing to date. As a student at RIT, Bonis helped produce NutriNews for students and answered questions about diet at Gracie’s, the cafeteria in Grace Watson residence hall.
“That was a real turning point,” she says. She realized she could give people information that could change their lives. “Barb Cerio (who teaches nutrition management) used to say ‘Knowledge is power,’ and that’s so true. Until you know it, you can’t do it.”
