delTodayMagazineIt’s no secret that Dean Linda L. Ammons wields much influence at the law school – but that influence has seeped into the fabric of the First State, says a leading magazine.

Delaware Today magazine has included the dean among its “14 People of Influence: Delawareans who shape the way we live.” The article is the cover story of its September issue that just arrived on newsstands.

“There’s a new generation of movers and shakers emerging who are shaping policies and making things happen,” the article by Assistant Editor Matt Amis begins. The story on Ammons, which is positioned alongside her full-color photo, explains what drew her to Widener Law, including the school’s quality institutes. It also mentions new initiatives happening since her arrival in 2006, including the founding of the Jurist Academy and the launch of the Environmental Law Center.

Others selected for the magazine’s list included ’80 alumnus Alan B. Levin, former chief executive officer of Happy Harry’s and now director of economic development for the state of Delaware, Paul Herdman, president and CEO of the Rodel Foundation and Bernard Muir, the new athletic director at the University of Delaware.
