March 15, 2013
Stetson University College of Law’s Black Law Students Association was honored with the National Most Improved Chapter Award during the 45th annual National Black Law Students Convention in Atlanta, Ga., March 6-10. Out of more than 200 chapters in BLSA, Stetson’s BLSA was the only chapter to receive the coveted award.
Stetson BLSA member Andrenette Sullivan was installed as Advocacy Specialist for the BLSA Southern Region Executive Board.
Sullivan attended the convention along with Stetson BLSA member Pavielle Bookman, and BLSA chapter delegates Charis Campbell, Brannon Gary, Angelica Jones, Valeria Obi, and BLSA president Lakeisha Simms.
“Our accomplishments over this past year make me extremely optimistic about the future of Stetson’s BLSA,” said Simms.
Last month, Stetson’s BLSA was named Chapter of the Year for the Southern Region for outstanding community activism from a pool of 43 law school chapters in Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
