Benjamin Spencer, dean of the William & Mary Law School and a U.S. Army Reserve captain, and his wife, Marlette, pose for a family portrait with their nine children in front of their home in Williamsburg, Virginia, Dec. 3, 2020. 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.
