Paul A. Dresser, Jr.

Mr. Paul Dresser served on the UMW Board of Visitors from 1992 to 2000, including four years as Rector, and on the Foundation Board from 2001 to 2014. He established scholarships in memory of his first wife, Judith, and in honor of his daughter, Amanda. After Judith's death, he married Julie Baxter and later established a scholarship in her honor. Julie Baxter received a BSN from George Mason University and has worked as a medical surgical and ICU nurse. Volunteer work with Hospice led her to a transition from acute care to palliative care and hospice nursing. Amanda Dresser Gada graduated from UMW in 1995 and was an All-American swimmer during her freshman and sophomore years.
