Attorney Tracey Lewis Coleman, right, considers Gary Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson to be one of her mentors. Freeman-Wilson met Coleman 22 years ago through Coleman’s high school counselor. Coleman had told her counselor at Roosevelt High School of her desire to become a lawyer. The counselor suggested Coleman talk to Freeman-Wilson, a Roosevelt High School alumna and Harvard Law School graduate. “I took her out to lunch, and we have been friends ever since,” Freeman-Wilson said.
