Campaign Statement

I believe its critical to maintain ongoing relationships with alumni and foster alumni relationships with the school. Continuing to build these relationships in support of the vision and mission of Peter Cooper is essential to sustaining Cooper Union for future generations.  I represent a family, spanning generations who have received much from Cooper. I value what each of us has received and am pleased to be able to contibute, to work and to give back.
