Congratulations to Rita Maimbourg, selected by Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) School of Law’s Office of Alumni Relations & Development as this year’s recipient of the Joan Gross ’76 Annual Fund Award. The honor is awarded annually to an alum who demonstrates extraordinary leadership by advocating for the law school annual fund, fostering a culture of philanthropy for the law school, volunteering with the law school’s Annual Giving or Development Office, and donating to the annual fund. The Office of Alumni Relations & Development presented the award to Rita on October 11.
