Re: Andrew T. Guzman

Andrew Guzman was quoted about a $1 million endowed gift from the Rosalie and Harold Rae Brown Charitable Foundation to enhance Gould's diversity efforts and provide financial support to law students. “This generous gift helps us in our journey to become a better, more inclusive institution, which in turn helps the legal profession become more diverse and more representative of the communities it serves,” he said. The story was also posted in Yahoo! Finance, the Bakersfield Californian, the Chronicle-Tribune and Odessa American.
