Stetson celebrates scholarship recipients
Stetson University College of Law Dean Christopher Pietruszkiewicz welcomed scholarship recipients to a special Spring Scholarship Banquet celebration on Saturday, Feb. 17, on the Gulfport campus. More than 100 students celebrated receiving more than 50 scholarships at Stetson Law.
Student scholarship recipient Alexis Deveaux spoke about what receiving a scholarship meant to her and Law alumni Prineet Sharma J.D. ’98 and Shamila Sharma J.D. ’96, husband and wife who met at Stetson as students, presented on the new Sharma Family Veterans Scholarship.
“Scholarship plays such a critical role in making a legal education more affordable for our law students and in enabling them to pursue the careers of their choice without crippling debt after graduation,” said Assistant Dean for Development & Alumni Relations Kevin M. Hughes. “This banquet is a wonderful opportunity to honor and recognize our students for their achievements and to celebrate the supportive, community environment that defines Stetson Law.”
