By custom, most years (though not every), the LRI confers a Service Award in recognition of outstanding contributions to the well-being of the Institute and the furtherance of its mission. This year, the Service Award goes to John and Margaret Denson of Houston. Their substantial support for Research Assistantships at the LRI launched a vital program. Assis- tantships support worthy young scholars during their doctoral work, who, in turn, provide invaluable logis- tical support for our programs. In fact, we could hardly function with- out them. Nothing succeeds like suc- cess, and the Densons’ initial gift helped us attract over $120k in sup- port for this program. To John, who passed away two years ago, and to Margaret Denson, then, our immense gratitude.
