          • Simona Agnolucci ’06, Rising Alumna of the Year; and

          “I am pleased to present these three notable individuals in anticipation of our first honors gala to be held this fall,” said UC Hastings Chancellor & Dean Frank H. Wu. “Drawing on a more than one hundred year tradition of service to our city, state and nation, these three honorees are excellent examples of the breadth and depth of the impact of UC Hastings on the broader community.”
