“This is where we found The One (and by that, we mean each other).* We love volunteering and giving back to the Law School because we had such an amazing experience together, and we are always looking for ways to pay it forward. Law School is where we met each other and so many of our closest lifelong friends to this day.”

“Without the generous financial support Penn Carey Law provided to Helen, she would not have been able to attend the Law School, and we would never have met. We just celebrated 50 years of marriage, and in May will celebrate our 50th Law School Reunion. We are forever grateful to Penn.”
