Fondest GW Memories: Grace Speights

Grace Speights, J.D. '82, chair of the GW Board of Trustees

As many fellow GW alumni have happily discovered, Chair Speights made a connection on her very first day of school—and it turned into a friend for life.

“My fondest memory is meeting Donna Hill Staton on the first day of school at GW Law. We learned that day that we had a great deal in common from growing up in Philadelphia, to mothers who were very active in our lives, to having a great Penn and Princeton basketball rivalry. Through late night study sessions and attending several Prince concerts together, we built a lifelong friendship that has remained strong to this day.”
