Benjamin Spencer, right, dean of the William & Mary Law School and a U.S. Army Reserve captain, walks to his van with his family in Williamsburg, Virginia, Dec. 2, 2020. Spencer and his wife, Marlette, have nine children. Spencer is the first African-American dean hired by the oldest law school in the country and a U.S. Army Reserve officer and lawyer who works for the Government Appellate Division. Spencer graduated from Harvard Law School and joined the Army when he was almost 41 because he felt a calling to serve people and serve his nation. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Master Sgt.
