Born From Tragedy

Three years ago yesterday, Robert Wone was laid to rest, but his good works live on through a number of service awards, fellowships and trusts. 

AEFThe Asian Pacific American Bar Association’s Educational Fund (AEF) recently announced their 2009 fellowship winners:

“In 2009, AEF awarded over $25,000 in fellowships and grants to law students that benefit the Asian Pacific American community or the D.C. metropolitan area at large.  Since 1993, AEF has awarded over $150,000 in fellowships.  We applaud and congratulate them for their efforts and service.”

Congratulations to Wendy Lau of the Catholic University Law School on being awarded the Robert E. Wone Fellowship.

Robert’s family established The Robert E. Wone Memorial Trust, in which funds are distributed to some of his favorite projects and causes.

We encourage all to send contributions to Jason Torchinsky at HoltzmanVogel PLLC   98 Alexandria Pike, Suite 53   Warrenton, Va.  20186.

    As one of the many mere gatekeepers/handmaidens to the power elite, I can afford only a small pittance as my 2009 contribution to the Wone Trust, which I will mail next week to Warrenton. (Although an important figure in Robert’s life — Judge Raymond A. Jackson himself — did pass through my particular gate, long before I became a gatekeeper.) Nevertheless, I do urge the heavier hitters on this site to (if they have not already done so) put their money where their typing is and to give generously to the Wone Trust or (to any other charity, besides, of course, the Price Defense Fund.)
