It is hard to believe that it has been over two years since the death of our Penn State friend and colleague Maureen Cavanaugh (see TaxProf Blog coverage here, here, here, and here). Shortly after Maureen's death, Dean Philip J. McConnaughay announced the establishment of an endowed faculty position to be known as the Maureen B. Cavanaugh Distinguished Faculty Scholar:
This position is a lasting tribute to Maureen's brilliant scholarship and dedicated teaching and will be awarded on an annual or biannual basis to a Penn State Dickinson faculty member on the basis of scholarly accomplishment, creativity and promise.
I was delighted to receive in the mail the announcement of Victor C. Romero as the Maureen B. Cavanaugh Distinguished Faculty Scholar:
"It is especially fitting that Maureen's close friend, Victor Romero, will be the first member of our faculty to hold this distinguished title," said Philip J. McConnaughay, dean of Penn State Dickinson School of Law. "Professor Romero's work and contributions to the law school have been outstanding. He is a first-rate classroom teacher who enjoys the great respect and affection of our students."
