John S. Meyer, Jr. Recognized for Service as Chair of Washington University’s School of Law Eliot Committee
At the Fall “kick-off” of the fundraising year ending June 30, 2015, John Meyer announced his resignation as Chair of the Washington University School of Law Eliot Society Committee. He expressed gratitude and pride to his fellow Law Eliot Committee Members and Development Staff for their dedication and hard work during his seven years of service and confidence in the ability of his successor, former Eliot Law Deputy and new Chair Glenn Davis, to lead the Committee effectively.
In a note to Committee members, Law School Dean Nancy Staudt remarked that, “John has brought seemingly boundless energy, creativity and wisdom to the Chair role… Under his leadership, the Law Eliot Society experienced tremendous growth and our prospects for the future are even brighter.”
Named after Washington University founder William Greenleaf Eliot, membership in the Eliot Society is open to those who make annual gifts to Washington University of $1000 or more. In John’s final year as Chair, the Law School surpassed its Eliot membership goal and was the only one of Washington University’s seven schools to achieve its goal for Eliot membership in four consecutive years.
Capes Sokol Goodman & Sarachan PC’s Washington University Law School alumni are supportive of the Law School. Since joining the Law School Challenge in 2012, 100% have participated in annual giving. John will be honored as a Distinguished Alumnus of the Law School in the spring of 2015.
