Fay Olga Pappas portrait

“No student in law school had what I brought from Rollins: a sincere passion for public service and a deep understanding that different points of view have value. Though I now make a career as an advocate, my greatest tool is the ability to hear my opponent out. We don’t have to like what our opposition has to say, but we can recognize that what drives us all is a common set of values. Once we do, that’s when even the most difficult problems can be solved.”
