(March 29, 2013) -- At the annual Girls' LEAP Gala on March 28, Simmons College was recognized for its longstanding support of their efforts and named President Helen G. Drinan '75LS, '78SM as the institutional recipient. This recognition came as a result of the commitment of the Scott/Ross Center staff, led by Steve London, and its many student volunteers.
