Yesterday afternoon we met for the first time to discuss the creation of a foundation in honor of my late father, Justice Ramon G Villagomez. The foundation would encourage local students to go off island, get an education, and return to the CNMI to work in the law profession. That's what my father did and, although I work in the environmental field and not the legal field and left when I was 3 and not 18, that's kind of what I did, too.
Creating a non-profit foundation should be an interesting side story on this blog. Our next meeting is April 24. I'll update you as we progress.
...and Alex, I'll let you know how you can be involved.
