Vice President, Corporate Compliance, Chief Compliance and Privacy Officer, Cedars-Sinai Health System, Los Angeles, Calif.
I would have thought that a great distance in time and place might have caused me to forget about - not care about - an institution that meant so much to me in my youth. The University of Scranton has surprised me by the ways in which it has remained in my thoughts. A lifetime of events, as well as a whole continent, have separated me from the teachers and friends who shaped my life in so many ways over those four short years in the 1960s. I now know I'll carry around those experiences for the rest of my life.
I also know that it's never too late - you're never too far away - to start giving back.
