If the Honorable Patti B. Saris '73 becomes a member of Harvard's board of Overseers, she should feel right at home on the Cambridge campus.
"I'm a local kid," she says.
It's true--Saris was born and raised in West Roxbury and attended Boston public schools as a child.
The college years didn't take her too far from home either--she crossed the river and attended Harvard as an undergraduate, and then again for Law School.
Now she works as a federal court judge downtown.
But even as Boston held Saris in its reins, Harvard, the judge says, launched her on a lifelong journey.
"It opened up so many horizons to me and gave me the idea that I could be a leader and move on," Saris says.
Her four years at Harvard were a time of great restlessness and change on campus--something she describes as exciting.
