Sacrificing, Giving and Doing For the Cause

Guest speaker: Joseph D. Feaster, Jr., '75, Of Counsel, McKenzie & Associates, P.C.

Professor Denise Carty-Bennia was a highly successful attorney and a tireless educator, advisor, mentor and friend to countless Northeastern law students. She was dedicated to the pursuit of academic excellence and the expansion of opportunities for people of color. Professor Carty-Bennia's untimely death in 1990 created a void for many who knew her and her work. Each year, as the applications for this award are reviewed, it is inspiring to see that so many Northeastern law students have dedicated themselves to improving the social and political issues that affect our communities as she did. Professor Carty-Bennia's dedication survives in the memories of those who knew and worked with her and lives on in those who choose to pursue a similar dream.
