    Alumni Couple Pay it Forward

    Oct 1
    By Laura Smith, Photo By Paul Wingler Flagler alumni Diane Evia-Lanevi, ‘87, and Ingemar Lanevi, ‘86, have come a long way since the mid-80s, when both were undergraduates at Flagler College. The couple, who met during their first week of school at Flagler, had something in common from day one: they both were immigrants to the United States — she as a toddler from Cuba, he as a teenager from Sweden. And they both benefited significantly from Flagler’s ability to offer them much-needed financial aid packages.
