I have the utmost respect and faith in the new board, which will be championed by President Ryan Cortopassi, Vice President Tyler Combs, Treasurer Zach Fischer, and Secretary Claribell Quinones.

So, in my last update as your outgoing President, I want to thank all of our PAD Hoosiers for an amazing year, and also my amazing Executive Board of 2017-2018 for all of their help planning and executing an amazing year of PAD activities!!!

Ryan Maloney | President, 2017-2018

Cate of the Maurer School of Law!!! The Executive Board of 2017-2018 thanks all of those who have given so generously this year!!!
