Remembering Laura Lynch
Laura Lynch, who had served as ELAM's program director since 2006, passed away on February 3, 2023. Laura shepherded hundreds of fellows through the program and stayed in close contact with them as they became ELUMs. She was the historian of the program and provided incredible insight. She led with humor and brought laughter and joy to our office. Her passing is a tremendous loss to the program and to our community. Donations in Laura's memory can be made to the ELAM Legacy Fund at giving.drexel.edu/LauraLynch. Please indicate that your gift is in memory of Laura.
