Janice Savin Williams, J79, an equity owner and managing director of the financial services firm Siebert Williams Shank & Co., LLC, has brought an irrepressible enthusiasm for the university’s progress to the Board of Trustees and the Campaign Cabinet Executive Committee. As a member of the Athletics Board of Advisors, she also has been a champion of sweeping improvements across Tufts Athletics, including the Steve Tisch Sports and Fitness Center and more recently, the Strength & Conditioning Coaching Development Program.
When Leslie Puth enrolled in Fletcher’s Master of Arts in Law and Diplomacy (MALD) program in 2009, she already had a long list of academic, professional, and personal accomplishments under her belt, including a bachelor’s degree from Wellesley; an MBA from the NYU Stern School of Business; a successful career in currency trading and sales; leadership positions with various community organizations and nonprofit boards; and an active family consisting of her husband David, A79, three children, and a dog.
Growing up in a one-bedroom flat in a triple-decker with his parents and three sisters in Somerville’s Teele Square, Peter Delli Colli, A69, D73, never could have imagined he would have a lifelong relationship with the university down the street. “When I was in a baby carriage, my mother would take me on walks around the campus,” he joyfully recounts. Later, Peter attended Tufts on a full scholarship with room and board.
