Paul C. Jorgensen ’85
February 01, 2001
Paul Jorgensen has been an active member of the Lewis & Clark community since his college days. After graduating in 1985, he attended Georgetown Law School in Washington, D.C. Since then, he has carved out a niche as a successful attorney and star alumnus.
For over a decade, Paul has served as the primary contact for Washington, D.C., alumni, helping organize events and activities for visiting Lewis & Clark representatives. In 1990, when the College adopted a national vision for its alumni efforts, Paul was instrumental in helping make the transition. He was a founding member of the Board of Alumni, drafting its bylaws and serving as parliamentarian.
Paul’s board service ended in 1996, but his involvement with the College has continued. Since 1990, he has been a stable and constant resource for the College’s off-campus study program in Washington, D.C. His involvement has grown from a guest lecturer and tour guide to a course instructor and program director.
Paul is a volunteer for Boy Scouts and Habitat for Humanity, and participates in the Washington, D.C., AIDS Ride. He is raising his 6-year-old son, Peter.
