Recently I spent a fun evening helping to celebrate the good deeds of one of Penn State Dickinson Law's alums, Hubert X. Gilroy.
He was being awarded the Alexis de Tocqueville Humanitarian Award by the local chapter of United Way, and the room was full of people who know Hubert from his many roles in our community. Former and current clients were there, judges and fellow lawyers, cycling buddies, running buddies, basketball buddies, YMCA colleagues, and on and on. He has raised literally millions of dollars for charitable endeavors and he's played many leadership roles, including as a member of the Board of Governors for our law school, and as the frequent coach of our students' moot court or mock trial teams.
Last evening there were a lot of laughs, often at "Bertie's" expense (and some of the stories may have even been true!), but the laughs were always warmly shared and that made me appreciate him all the more.
Thanks for your continuing inspiration, Hubert!
