Posted by on Mar 21, 2015 in LLYC: The Beat

What a pleasure to interview an old friend and LLYC alumni/staffer, Steve Wallace! When I first met him, Wallace was a goofy young counselor with the unlikely nickname “Chauncey” (why, Katie Schrank Chapman, why?) Years later, he became a trusted and faithful friend to my husband and interned with LLYC before marrying the lovely Ally Wallace and “settling down” […]
