Alyssa DiRusso, a member of our faculty in the Cumberland School of Law, wrote to me a few weeks ago with this story:
"I teach an upper level course on the law of estate and trust administration. Last week, we covered laws relating to prudent investment of fiduciary funds. Lisa Imbragulio, the Director of Investments for Samford, was an inspiring and informational guest speaker. She helped the students understand the connection between the (admittedly somewhat abstract) laws we covered in our materials and the realities of a challenging investment environment. It struck me as a good example of how someone from the administration became actively involved in furthering the academic experience of our students. I’m very grateful Lisa shared her insights and experience with our university’s budding lawyers."
The world is better because of Lisa Imbragulio's stewardship--inside and outside the classroom.
