Terry Thies, wife of W & T shareholder, John Thies, is chair of the board of EIF as a follow up to her leadership of the Lawyers Feeding Illinois project started during John’s term as President of the Illinois State Bar Association (and which raised 4.6 million meals for low income individuals and families throughout the state).
