A group of 12 students gathered on Tuesday, Nov. 19, to write thank you notes to Law School alumni and friends as part of the autumn Thank-a-thon.

The students wrote nearly 400 notes thanking donors for their contributions to Duke Law.

“It’s so easy to get incredibly focused on what you’re doing here at the Law School and your own betterment and advancement,” said Ruben Henriquez. “I think it is important to remember that there are other people that are very integral in helping you succeed at Duke, making it the special place that is it. It’s important to take the time to thank these people.”

Thank-a-thon team leaders were Ruben Henriquez, Tara McGrath, and Josh Aronoff. Volunteers included Brandi Ripp, Anna Orsini, Sandra Yoo, Stephanie Laboy, Nick Atallah, Tyler Warner, Sara Campbell, Jana Kovich, and John Gerl.

    A forlorn, largely vacant shopping center on 10 acres of asphalt in central Durham seems like an unlikely place for innovation. But Ann Woodward, executive director of the nonprofit Scrap Exchange, imagines transforming this site into a creative reuse arts district (the “RAD”).  This district, an inventive mix of nonprofits, cooperatives and for-profit companies, would not only ensure that the Lakewood Shopping Center becomes a profitable asset, but would also be the catalyst for the revitalization of the surrounding neighborhood.
