Laurentian Leadership Society Holds Third Annual Dinner


Shayla Snyder Witherell ’11

Over 70 members of the Laurentian Leadership Society gathered last spring in New York City for the group’s third annual dinner with President William L. Fox ’75 and his wife, Lynn. Young alumni Carey Kaiser ’14 and Vasileios Prassas ’14 joined Lynn Fox at the podium to discuss the impact of experiential learning opportunities and the alumni network in New York City. As successful young alumni now living and working there, they have benefited immensely from both and are extremely grateful for all of the support. From this Laurentian generosity, Vasileios has learned that “Giving is the most sustainable source of happiness.”

The Laurentian Leadership Society recognizes those donors whose total commitment to the University has reached $100,000. For information about the Society, please email stewardship@stlawu.edu or call 315-229-5730.
