Meet the Law Annual Fund Chair

This year's Law Annual Fund Chair is Col. (Ret.) Toby McCoy '92, '95L. 

It only took one chat with a law alum before Toby knew that he wanted to be the first in his family to attend W&L Law. His ROTC service helped him through his four undergrad years, during which he was a committed baseball player for W&L.

Once in Lewis Hall, Toby thrived. "The study, the challenge, my professors, my friends--I loved it all. W&L Law is not just where I went to school--it's a part of who I am." (And Toby's retirement plans may even include a return move to Lexington, so he can host the baseball team and work with JAG candidates.)

Toby has supported the Law Annual Fund every year since graduating 25 years ago. "No matter how much I give back, I'll never be able to repay all that W&L has given to me."
