Philosophy Professor Emeritus Leonard I. Krimerman was celebrated on Saturday, August 6th, by alumnae/i from the Inner College project he mentored back in the late 1960s. The alumnae/i spoke of how his mentorship transformed their lives and contributed to the citizenship work they continue to do in their communities.
