Rydberg in Stetson Hall of Fame

1/5/2015 | Author: Johanne Castagan

Marsha Rydberg was recently inducted into the Stetson University College of Law Hall of
Fame. Hall of Fame inductees are selected for having a profound and positive impact on
Stetson Law and the legal profession. Marsha graduated first in her class at Stetson Law
during a time when a Florida Bar survey revealed that women comprised only about 3% of
the legal profession. She was the first woman president of the Hillsborough County Bar
Association, the first woman president of the Tampa Exchange Club, the first woman to chair
the Tampa Downtown Partnership and the first woman member and later president of the
University Club of Tampa. Her accomplishments are too numerous to list here but are enumerated in a delightful presentation at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K7mGKppKcBU.  We congratulate Marsha on this significant honor!
