September began a new fiscal year for PILI, and with that came changes to the Alumni Network Leadership Council. Elizabeth Lewis was recently elected to PILI’s Board of Directors and has stepped down as Chair after a two-year term. In her place, Vice Chair Kate Pomper Costello has been named Chair, and Jordan Heinz will serve as Vice Chair. Elizabeth will stay on the Council for one more year as Immediate Past Chair.
Kate Pomper Costello is an Assistant Attorney at the Illinois Attorney General’s Office and had served as a PILI Law Student Intern at the Sargent Shriver National Center on Poverty Law. Jordan Heinz is a partner at Kirkland & Ellis LLP and was a “Double PILI,” having served as both a PILI Law Student Intern and a PILI Graduate Fellow at Chicago Volunteer Legal Services.
We are so grateful for Elizabeth, Kate and Jordan and the service they, and the rest of the Alumni Network Leadership Council, give to PILI!
