Susan E. Brown, who was the first woman named a partner at Vorys, Sater, Seymour and Pease, last month received a Ralph Davenport Mershon Alumni Award from the Ohio State University Alumni Association, Inc. at its annual recognition banquet. The Ralph Davenport Mershon Award is presented to alumni who have demonstrated exceptional leadership and service to Ohio State.
Ms. Brown specializes in corporate law and has been listed in the book The Best Lawyers in Americasince 1992. But Ms. Brown's workload has not kept her from service to her community and her university. A survivor of breast cancer, Ms. Brown has been active with the Columbus affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and has helped raise more than $1 million for breast cancer research.
