Fé Lopez '06 named to new post in Mayor Murray's office
(Jan. 8, 2014) Fé Lopez, director of Alumni Relations and Annual Fund and a 2006 graduate of Seattle University School of Law, is the new director of the Seattle Community Police Commission. Seattle Mayor Ed Murray made the appointment public this morning at a press conference.
This new position is a further extension of her longstanding commitment to community service and advocacy for the underserved. A past president of the Latina/o Bar Association of Washington, she is active with the minority bar associations and the social justice community, and on the basis of that work, she received the 2013 Excellence in Diversity Award from the Washington State Bar Association. She has also served as a member of Mayor Murray's Transition Team.
"This new role is obviously an extraordinary opportunity for Fé and an ideal fit with her commitment to equal justice and police accountability," Dean Annette E. Clark said.
Clark said Lopez has been a champion of the law school since she was a student. She was an ARC Scholar and served as SBA president. Following a year with the King County Prosecutor's Office, she returned to the law school as assistant and then Director for Student Life, and in 2012, became director of Alumni Relations and Annual Fund.
"Her work has greatly strengthened the relationships between the law school and our alumni, and we have all benefited from Fe's enthusiasm and warmth as well as her passion and drive to make the world a better place," Clark said.
