Corvino Room Dedication

Former Dean Howard Frank, Alexandra Corvino, Joyce Corvino, Gloria Friedgen ’73, Ralph Friedgen, and Elizabeth Corvino at the dedication of the Mike Corvino memorial classroom on April 3.

Mike Corvino ’82 never made it home for his wife’s birthdays. He was always traveling for business. But he made a point to always surprise her with something wonderful even when he was away, like arranging a special birthday menu at her favorite restaurant. 

So it was very appropriate, said Joyce Corvino, that it was on her birthday, April 3, 2008, that the Smith School dedicated a classroom to Corvino in memory of his generous support of the Smith School and its students. The dedication ceremony was attended by many members of Corvino’s immediate and extended family, including Joyce; daughters Alexandra and Elizabeth; father Joseph; and friends and family members. 

Corvino, who was killed in a car accident in September 2007, was an active member of the school’s Board of Visitors. Students found in him a wonderful, warm and engaging resource for questions about everything from sports to future careers. The Smith School is proud to honor his memory with the Corvino classroom.
