Pitt law clinic to help low-income seniors endowed by $1 million grant

Man, how very cool is this!!!  Via the Pittsburgh Tribune:

The Pittsburgh region's top prosecutor and one of its top businesswomen have created a $1 million endowment that will support the University of Pittsburgh's Elder Law Clinic.

U.S. Attorney David Hickton and his wife, Dawne Hickton, president and CEO of RTI International Metals named the endowment in honor of David Hickton's late mother, Gloria McDermott Hickton.

Gloria McDermott Hickton was an actress, a South Hills real estate agent for 35 years and one of the first members of the Pittsburgh chapter of the National Organization for Women, according to her obituary. She died in April 2013.

David and Dawne Hickton met while they were students at Pitt's law school.

The clinic's law students represent low-income senior citizens facing legal problems. William M. Carter Jr., dean of Pitt's law school, said the endowment helps meet the school's goals of providing students with practical experience and providing community service.
