On Thursday, October 27, we celebrated FSU Law alumna Salesia Smith-Gordon’s (’92) generous financial support of the College of Law with a portrait unveiling ceremony. Friends of the law school and of Smith-Gordon, including her mother, Jeraldine Williams (’81); Judge Nina Ashenafi Richardson (’91); and Jason Burnett (’88), president of the FSU Law Alumni Association Board of Directors, spoke to Smith-Gordon’s character, leadership through action, and giving spirit during the event. Smith-Gordon said she hopes her gift will be meaningful for years to come and that it will help foster an environment of inclusion at the law school. In addition to supporting FSU Law financially, Smith-Gordon often meets with law students, serves on the FSU Law Board of Visitors, and served as the first president of the law school’s Black Alumni Network. The law school community is very thankful for Smith-Gordon's generosity and for the many other alumni who, like her, give monetarily and of their time to invest in our students.
