Senior Jesse James ’07 surprised outgoing NAWM board of directors president Jay Fisher ’66 at their meeting Friday when James presented Fisher with the Richard O. Ristine Award for his efforts in supporting Wabash’s Pre-Law Society.

Fisher was to have received the award at the Peck Dinner but the untimely death of his mother precluded his attendance. The surprise held, though, as Jay was genuinely moved by the honor.

Fisher was a leading advocate of strengthening the preparation of our young men for the finest law schools and those efforts, also led by NAWM board member and Wabash professor Scott Himsel ’85, have made a great deal of progress in a short amount of time.

Thanks to Jay and Scott and congratulations to Jay!
