Law Alumni Association Board
Dedicated to Engaging Alumni
The School of Law Alumni Association Board of Directors welcomed Stephen But-
ton ’06 as its new president during its fall of 2016 meeting. As president-elect,
Stephen devoted his efforts to adapting our governing documents to fit the Board’s
future direction. With a strong foundation in place, Stephen will work with Immedi-
ate Past President Marcy Spratt ’09 as part of the leadership team that is dedicated
to engaging our alumni.
Stephen will also provide guidance to new members of the Board, who were
recently installed. Kaley Lentini ’ 14 is an attorney at the Connecticut State Democratic Caucus. Nicole Murray ’05 is a local attorney at the Law Offices of Mark E.
Salomone. Ed Pikula ’83 is the City Solicitor for the City of Springfield. Hirak Shah
’ 10 is the Legal Counsel in the Office of the Massachusetts Senate Minority Leader
Bruce E. Tarr.
Over the past year, it has
been a tremendous honor
to have served as president
of the Alumni Association.
The members of the Board
of Directors have displayed
an incredible commitment
to enriching our law school
community, and the future
of the Association could not
be brighter. I look forward
to continuing to work with
the Board and I am thrilled
to pass the leadership baton
to Steve Button, whose passion and dedication to community service has truly
inspired me.” —Marcy Spratt ’09
It is my sincere hope that we will be able to continue to build upon the successes of
Marcy Spratt and the Board. With her continued assistance and the dedication of the
Board and its new members, we will fulfill our obligation to the alumni and Western
New England University School of Law to increase our outreach within the communities in which so many of our dedicated graduates serve.” —Stephen Button ’06
Mike Borg ’88 and Linda Fakhoury ’04 have been selected to
renew their terms and Jon Longobardi ’ 10 rejoined the Board
for a second term after a two-year hiatus. Mike and Linda will
continue to be proven leaders for the Communications Committee, and Jon brings insight from his first term during
which he was part of the task force that provided the framework for the Distinguished Alumnus Award.
At the fall meeting, the Board also thanked those Directors
stepping off the Board, James Martin ’06, Spencer Naake
’ 10 and Zachary Ryan ’09, for their service. These outgoing
members were encouraged by the Board to continue to be
actively involved with the Alumni Association.
Members also encourage you to volunteer your time and
talent. Become a class agent, an event host, or even serve on
a committee as a way to get involved with your alumni association. The Board also invites you to join the LinkedIn page
or Facebook group for weekly updates on alumni and to look
for our e-news letter in your inbox. Stay connected by emailing Kim Roeder at email@example.com. ◆
