UK Law Hosts Brunch to Celebrate 2015-16 Scholarship Recipients
April 29, 2016
On April 9, University of Kentucky College of Law students, alumni and friends gathered at Copper Roux for a brunch in honor of the 2015-16 scholarship recipients and donors.
The event gave over 65 exceptional law students and donors the opportunity to fellowship. Students expressed their appreciation to the generous alumni and friends of UK Law and the donors learned firsthand how big of an impact they are making in the lives of current students.
David A. Brennen, Dean and Professor of Law at UK Law, gave remarks over breakfast. He emphasized the key role that donors play in ensuring that students have the opportunity to pursue their dreams of obtaining a legal education at UK.
For the 2015-16 school year, UK Law proudly awarded 70 scholarships to over 200 deserving students.
“I ask that you, as recipients, reflect on how meaningful scholarships have been to you and your education,” said Dean Brennen. “I encourage you to consider making a gift to scholarships for the next generation of UK Law students.”
Jonathon Nunley, a third-year law student, enjoyed interacting with the donors who were “full of knowledge and stories.”
“Events like the scholarship brunch make me appreciate the contributions UK Law alumni and friends regularly make to the college,” said Nunley. “I hope to join the ranks one day as a notable donor.”
The scholarship brunch is one of many ongoing ways in which UK Law thanks our scholarship donors and recognizes our scholarship recipients.
