In Memory of Daniel Weinberger, EFL ‘07


It is with great sadness that we report on the passing of Economics for Leaders alum, Daniel Weinberger. Daniel attended the 2007 Skidmore College EFL program, and returned the next year for the EFL reunion in Williamsburg, VA. Sixteen classmates of the Skidmore 2007 program, upon learning of Daniel’s death, started a collection to be used to fund a scholarship for a student to attend an EFL program this summer. Other members of that Skidmore EFL class are encouraged to contribute to the fund, currently with $450. In fact, other EFL alumni, with whom this memorial effort may resonate, are certainly welcome to contribute to the “Daniel Weinberger Scholarship Fund.”
