Jack Proud '04

Attorney, Porter, Wright, Morris and Arthur, LLP
Dayton, Ohio

Jack Proud, an attorney with Porter, Wright, Morris and Arthur and a University of Dayton trustee, was named in 2007 to chair the board at his alma mater.

''Serving the University of Dayton and my fellow trustees in the chair's role is a labor of love for me,'' Proud said. ''The entire UD community is united in devotion to our great university and the Catholic and Marianist education it delivers to help develop the next generation of servant-leaders."

Proud, a two-time University of Dayton graduate, rejoined UD's board of trustees in 2004 after serving a three-year term from 1998-2001, when he was president of UD's National Alumni Association.

Prior to joining Porter, Wright, Morris and Arthur where he specializes in business and estate law, he served as president of Monarch Marking Systems Inc. and spent more than 28 years in various roles at the Reynolds and Reynolds Co., most recently as a division president. He graduated from UD with a bachelor's degree in psychology in 1970 and a law degree in 2004.
