Tell us something about the value and /or meaning of your LBSC experience?

I have fond memories of the school and the many friends I made in college.  My college prepared me well for a career in law, judging and disputing resolution.  I am now returning to the school some of the financial support which is needed for the school to grow in stature and help other low to middle class students achieve their goals.

What are your fondest memories of LBSC?

Being part of the track team between 1956-1959.

Where was your favorite hang-out on campus?

My favorite place on campus was The Commons.

How did LBSC prepare you for life after college?

I went on to USC Law School, practice law and became a California Superior Court Judge.

What are you doing today?

I am currently a retired Judge, doing private mediations and arbitrations affiliated with JAMS. 

How have you been involved as an alumnus?

I am an Alumni Association member, member of President’s Associates and 24 Karat Club.
