“Dickinson molded me into the person I am today, so it’s important for me to show my appreciation for the college and those who provided financial support for me. For that reason, I have made a contribution to the Annual Fund every year since my graduation and plan to do so every year for the remainder of my life.” —Lee Tankle ’10


Grew up in suburban Philadelphia “without a lot of self-confidence.” Wanted to go to a college with strong faculty, a strong sense of community and a global approach. Wasn't quite sure how he'd afford Dickinson until a scholarship made it possible. Found that self-confidence here, becoming Student Senate president, interning at the Department of Homeland Security, introducing Bill Clinton when he spoke at the college and partnering with a Dickinson alum to help raise nearly $20,000 for victims of the 2010 earthquake in Haiti—“these things just don’t happen at other schools.” Earned law degree from William & Mary Law School and now works as an associate attorney at McNees Wallace & Nurick LLC.
