Founders Dinner toasts vision

The annual Founders Dinner on Feb. 1 toasted the University’s history.

“This community is named after John Emory because of his vision of an American educational experience that would mold character as well as mind,” said keynote speaker Christopher Richardson ‘03C.

The former Student Government Association president shared his own extraordinary story, from surviving cancer to creating an outreach program to help low-income cancer patients obtain legal services.
Richardson spoke of other Emory alums and students working to make an impact around the world.

“In these stories that make our community, I see we are all an embodiment of what John Emory envisioned,” he said.
