WILL is Harris' Hero

WILL, the Wilderness Leadership and Learning Program headed by Washington and Lee alumnus Steve Abraham, was recognized this week on WJLA-TV in Washington as one of Harris’ Heroes, a special segment from anchor Leon Harris.

WILL helps D.C. teens grow and learn in order to help them become leaders and achieve their goals. Or, more simply, Steve says, “At WILL, we believe in unlimited horizons.”

Steve received his bachelor’s degree from W&L in 1980 and his law degree in 1983. A D.C. native, Steve was practicing law in his hometown when he decided to start working full-time with high school students. His development of the WILL program grew out of his involvement in volunteer activities at high schools, as well as tutoring and coaching in D.C.
