We were fortunate to have former trustee Alston Parker Watt as this year’s speaker. Alston graduated from W&L in 1989 and in 1996 received a Masters in Health Science from the Johns Hopkins University School of Public Health. Alston is the Executive Director and a Trustee of the Williams Family Foundation of Georgia, a family foundation that supports programs focused on children, preservation and conservation with a geographic focus in southwest Georgia. While at W&L Alston was a member of the Student Executive Committee and was a two-sport letter winner at W&L in both swimming & diving and lacrosse. Alston is the first undergraduate woman to serve on the Washington and Lee Board of Trustees (2003-2011).
