 Matt Schwarz and Crystal Ricevuto, co-chairs of this year’s 3L Campaign Committee, are proud to announce that the Class of 2011 exceeded its participation goal making it the law school’s most successful 3L campaign, according to Jennifer Hudson, associate director of law advancement.

 “The committee’s participation goal for contributions to the Law Fund was 80 percent and the final count was 86 percent participation,” she said. “That makes this year’s 3L Campaign the most successful 3L Campaign to date.”

Dean Blake Morant added, “Evidence of Wake Forest’s fortitude during difficult times comes from the law school’s most recent graduating class, of which 86 percent has pledged financial support for the law school.  At a time when employment options are so limited, such a demonstration of support by the Class of 2011 inspires me and hopefully serves as a stimulus to all who believe in this special law school.” 

In addition to receiving 2011 class t-shirts for a minimum donation of $25, those who donated $50 or more were entered into a raffle for a weekend at an Indian Beach house, donated by Tom Comerford (’74), and a weekend at the Biltmore Village condo, donated by Charlie Trefzger (’84). Roger Smith and Meggan Bushee were the respective winners.

“Be proud of yourselves and your class,” Schwarz added.
