Stockton Honors Lloyd D. Levenson on LIGHT’s 10th Anniversary

The Lloyd D. Levenson Institute of Hospitality, Gaming and Tourism (LIGHT) at Stockton University belatedly celebrated its 10th anniversary March 9 and recognized its namesake’s significant contributions to the university and the community.

Attorney Lloyd D. Levenson was honored for his efforts to develop the institute in 2010 and his ongoing support for its work and Stockton.

“Lloyd and (his wife) Liane have remained dedicated to LIGHT’s success,” Stockton President Harvey Kesselman said. “They are also enthusiastic and long-term supporters of our entire university. Their commitment is demonstrated through contributions of their time, expertise and sponsorship – not just to Stockton, but to the many charities and nonprofit groups they support throughout all of South Jersey.”

Levenson is CEO of the Cooper Levenson law firm and chairman of the Casino & iGaming Law practice group, as well as of the Government Services and Cannabis Law Practice groups.

Under the leadership of Faculty Director Jane Bokunewicz and Assistant Director Sarah Grady, LIGHT serves as an academic resource for governing agencies, private industries and the community on issues involving the gaming, hospitality and tourism industries in New Jersey.

Lori Pepenella, president of the New Jersey Tourism Industry Association and CEO of the Southern Ocean County Chamber of Commerce, noted the positive impact LIGHT has made in the past decade on the tourism industry in the region.

“This institute that was founded by Mr. and Mrs. Levenson has surely been the standard for the future of hospitality in our state,” said Pepenella.

The anniversary event was sponsored by Resorts Casino Hotel, Steel Pier, Friedman LLP, Lucern Capital Partners, Spectrum Gaming Group.
