Lion's Paw Board of Directors: 2017 Candidate Biographies
Please read the bios of all our candidates for this year's LP Board of Directors elections
Steven Brush (LP 1976)
After graduating from Penn State in May, 1976, Stephen Brush entered Duquesne University School of Law, received his juris doctor degree and was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in December, 1979 at the ripe old age of 25. Thirty-seven years later he continues on as an attorney, although, he admits to arriving at his office later than in my earlier years. Stephen has always believed and practiced law with the idea of an attorney's obligation to public service at the forefront. He has served various not for profit organizations, both as legal counsel and as a member of boards of directors including historic building preservation (35 years), a cost free medical and dental clinic for low income uninsured individuals and families (17 years) and groups counseling troubled youth (12 years). When Stephen successfully ran for the Lions Paw Board three years ago, he did so because he believed that any Penn State graduate who was proud of the diploma on her/his wall could best serve our alma mater in times that were troubling for all of us by giving back time and energy to Penn State organizations. Stephen will continue to do that should he be chosen by his fellow Lions Paw alumni to serve a second three-year term on the Board.
