Naming of the Lacrosse Field in Memory of George Thanasas '17

Last June, we suffered an unthinkable loss when George Thanasas ’17 was taken from us two days after graduation.

To remember George, the University Liggett School Class of 2018 has initiated a $500,000 campaign to name the school’s lacrosse field and install a scoreboard in George’s memory. Each member of the class made a gift to this initiative. 

Thank you to our many donors for their generous support of the George Thanasas Lacrosse Field naming initiative. We have raised $500,000 in memory of George, whose beaming smile and easy laugh brightened our days, and whose calm determination, keen intellect and indefatigable spirit were an inspiration for everyone who knew and loved him.
