Shon Lawson Gilmore fills much-needed role as Wake Forest Law’s first-ever alumni relations coordinator

The first thing you notice about Shon Lawson Gilmore is her smile. And how it reaches all the way up into her eyes. It’s her smile that draws people instantaneously to her but it’s her sincerity that keeps them coming back.
