“The Washington College of Law is like an extended family that has given each of us a chance to be successful in our careers and to appreciate the importance of giving something back to the community. Because of this, like many, I feel a strong sense of commitment to the WCL family, including the administration, staff, professors, students and fellow alums. This commitment can be expressed in many ways--from contributing to the annual fund, participating in CLE programs and special events sponsored by the law school, mentoring students, attending class reunions, assisting on recruiting initiatives and networking with alumni.”
– Thomas Morante ’77, Chair of The Myers Society.
The Myers Society, Washington College of Law’s highest gift club, recognizes Dean John Sherman Myers and his wife, Alvina Reckman Myers, who committed their professional lives and personal wealth to WCL and its students. Since its inception more than twenty years ago, the Myers Society has had a visible impact on WCL students by supporting the academic programs and activities that define their legal education.
In this spirit, we encourage you to join other Myers Society members by contributing $1,500 ($125/month) or more to the Washington College of Law. With your commitment, you will become an important part of a community of donors who are making it possible for WCL to meet the challenges of providing the highest caliber of legal education to its students.
