The House is one of several cultural centers at Yale. Dawson (second from L in left photo) was among founding students who spoke about the Center's early days at the panel discussion. Lighten (at R in the right photo) spoke about philanthropy. He and his late wife Janifer Lighten '83 made special contributions over the years to help renovate the Center. A section of the Center is named for the Lightens. (Janifer Lighten was also a board member of YWAA.) Rodney Cohen, who two years ago served as a judge at the YWAA debate competition in Westchester, is the current director of the Center.
