Distinguished Alumni Panels: Social Advocacy

Hal George (Class of 1976) and Muriel Fox (Class of 1948)

On Thursday, November 4, Interim Provost Laurie Joyner introduced four very distinguished alumni for a panel on social advocacy. These alumni were not famous for fame or fortune, but rather, for something that Rollins holds to a higher value – advocacy, innovation, and service.

The panelists—cofounder of National Organization for Women Muriel Fox (Class of 1948), Habitat for Humanity and founder and president of Winter Park Affiliate Hal George (Class of 1976), social justice and peace activist Liz Abrams (Class of 2000), and assistant professor of psychology at Lasell College LeLanina Romero (Class of 2000)—each spoke of how Rollins changed the way they viewed giving back.

“The sense of community and love for community is an important role in Winter Park and Rollins College,” said George. “The two are very interchangeable: the love Rollins has for the community and the love that the community has for Rollins.”
