Saturday, April 29 we hosted our first-ever C|M|LAW Legacy Celebration. A C|M|Law Legacy is an alumnus, alumna or current student whose parent, grandparent, sibling, aunt, uncle, or spouse/life partner also received a degree from C|M|Law. More than 60 alumni legacies from 16 families attended and each were given our new C|M|LAW Legacy pin. A few families had as many as 7 members of their family who graduated from C|M|LAW!
The Cleveland-Marshall Law Alumni Association co-sponsored the event. President Gregory F. Clifford '80, along with Immediate Past President Kevin F. Butler '01, President-Elect Tim Collins '85, and Vice President Michelle Paris '84, were in attendance.
Congratulations to our Trivia Winner Russell O'Rourke '84
With an impressive 10 out of 14 questions correct!
We pinned five graduating Legacies:
Jordan Brogley Webb ’17 (Mother: Joycelyn Brogley '90)
Nicholas Haddad ‘17 (Mother: Susan Stephanoff '83)
Nina Nager ‘17 (Uncle: David Nager '90)
Michael Nakon ‘17 (Grandfather: Michael Nakon '63; Uncle: Matthew Nakon '88)
