Member, Advisory Council at St. Simons Land Trust

The St. Simons Land Trust has become a community institution entrusted with an extraordinary responsibility: to protect our scenic and historic treasures and to preserve the beauty and charm of our island for generations to come. Since those early days, the Land Trust has preserved more than 1,000 acres (and another 200 acres in a nearby county). We also hold over 300 acres in conservation easements. The first parcel of land protected was the Gilbert property on Frederica Road, now the site of the popular John Gilbert Nature Trail which was opened to the public in 2006. The SSLT works with willing property owners to preserve their land using tools that include: conservation easements, donations of land and outright purchases of land through tax advantaged "bargain sales." We are guided in our work by our most recent strategic plan for land conservation on the island that has established target areas for our work and priorities for transactions.

Education
LLB with Honors
Class of 1962

We offer real-world experiences that give you a glimpse of what life as a lawyer will be like. And we expose you to diverse opportunities to help you determine where your passions lie—whether it’s fighting to protect a patent or a human life. Our professors have unique backgrounds and interests—from pioneering the Feminism and Legal Theory Project to uncovering the intersection of law and religion, to fighting for justice for Guantanamo Bay detainees. But they all share a culture of openness and collaboration with their students and with each other. As an Emory Law student, you are encouraged to challenge the status quo and follow your mind and your heart. You may aspire to do mergers and acquisitions in a large corporation, or to be on the ground pursuing the personal cause or in the courtroom defending an abused child. Whichever path you choose, you will leave Emory with a deep knowledge of the law and a set of valuable skills. At Emory, we prepare you for more than practice. We prepare you to challenge and change the world.

The Georgia Institute of Technology is a public research university in Atlanta, Georgia, in the United States.

Initially, it offered only a degree in mechanical engineering. By 1901, its curriculum had expanded to include electrical, civil, and chemical engineering. In 1948, the school changed its name to reflect its evolution from a trade school to a larger and more capable technical institute and research university.
