"It has been very gratifying to be one of the founders of the Princeton Class of 1969 Community Service Fund/PICS Program, which was originally inspired by members of Princeton Project 55. Over the years our organization has been a total success with providing positively impactful summer experiences for generations of Princeton students toward influencing career choices and life directions. Also, I have met and gotten to know a number of classmates, as well as other alumni and staff who have joined this endeavor. One other outcome is that CSF was instrumental in the development of, and my involvement in, Princeton-in-Africa, which has now had over 300 year-long fellows in 34 countries in its first decade."
