Gulfport, Fla. – Stetson University College of Law was awarded the American Bar Association Law Student Division Award of Excellence at a special ceremony Aug. 10 in San Francisco, Calif. Stetson has received the recognition twice in the past three years.

“Every student member on campus should feel responsible for helping bring this award home to Stetson again,” said Michael Farley, assistant dean of student life at Stetson.

A delegation of Stetson students, including Louis Brown, Michael Davis, Davina Eads, Annessa Kalloo, Allison Markee, Shanda Moyers, Chris Sprowls and Callie Weed, traveled to the annual meeting of the ABA Law Student Division to accept the award.

Farley credited Stetson student involvement with the ABA and Student Bar Association, along with the outstanding student leadership of ABA Representative Melody James and former president of the SBA, Tracey Sticco. Both James and Sticco are recent Stetson Law graduates.

Also at the meeting, Stetson student Chris Sprowls was elected to national office as division delegate for the American Bar Association House of Delegates, and recent Stetson graduate Brian Redar completed his term as student representative for the ABA Board of Governors.
