Roberta D. Pichini, Esq. '77 delivered the keynote address. Pichini is a partner in the firm of Feldman Shepherd Wohlglernter Tanner Weinstock & Dodig LLP and is the first woman in Pennsylvania to be invited to both the International Academy of Trial Lawyers and the American College of Trial Lawyers. Her colleagues have voted her one of the top 100 attorneys in Pennsylvania.


She reminded the students and their families of Neumann's mission, based upon the belief that knowledge is a gift to be shared in the service of others. Robert F. Kennedy, she said, defined each act of service as "a tiny ripple of hope," urging the graduates to create such ripples of hope in their lives.
