The John Marshall Law School in Chicago celebrated the academic and co-curricular accomplishments of its students at the 2nd Annual Honors & Awards Ceremony on April 18. More than one hundred students were recognized at the event.
Awards were bestowed on students for achievements such as earning the highest grade in a course, participating in an honors program or journal and holding a student government position.
The Office of Student Life debuted two new awards this year. The Advocacy Leadership Award was created to honor a student who has demonstrated strong leadership in generating campus-wide awareness about existing social issues and advocating for change in the community. Third-year student Zuneera Masood Johnwell was the inaugural recipient.
The Spirit of Excellence Award honors a student who has consistently collaborated with a variety of student groups and John Marshall departments to produce quality events and services. Third-year student Kaylee Willis received this year’s award.
