SIU School of Law Alumna Extends a Helping Hand Once Again
By Rebecca Renshaw
Earlier this year, Beth Boggs, ’91 SIU School of Law alumna, and a partner of Boggs, Avellino, Lach & Boggs, donated 10,000 meals and face masks to students in the St. Louis public schools. A feature article on Boggs efforts can be read here.
Now Boggs is giving back again – this time to her alma mater, The SIU School of Law.
Recently, Cindy Walker, development officer for the law school, searched for a way to raise $27,600 to pay for AdaptiBar software to help with the third-year law students’ bar study.
“When I asked the Board of Visitors at the law school to help us fund this need, Beth stepped right up and donated $20,000 and helped raise another $1000. Other board members then donated the rest,” said Walker.
“We have so many remarkable and loyal alumni,” said Camille Davidson, who took over as dean in July.
“Beth Boggs is a perfect example of the amazing SIU School of Law alumni who are willing to pay it forward and help us meet the needs of our students.”
