Ken Elzinga - Antitrust Thanksgiving Hero

The holiday season brings out the best in many people.  Ken Elzinga of the University of Virginia was profiled for opening up his home to his students for Thanksgiving.  From the article:

Hundreds of students have come through his home to feast over the years from far and near. The couple never had children so hosting Thanksgiving expands Elzinga’s family.

"They're my students and for that day they're my kids,” said Elzinga

Ken is one of the most kind and thoughtful people I know.

This act of generosity and inclusiveness doesn't surprise me at all. Ken is not only a terrific economist and teacher but a lovely and gracious human being. My brother Mark, who received both a master's in economics and a law degree from Virginia, also had the highest regard for Ken. His students are very lucky and will have a Thanksgiving they'll never forget!
