RALEIGH Campbell Law School hosted its annual luncheon for scholarship donors on Tuesday, March 3. More than 100 donors, alumni, students, faculty and staff members attended the event, including numerous distinguished Campbell Law alumni and former faculty members.

Hosted by Dean J. Rich Leonard, the event’s invocation was given by Caleb Wheeler (’20), who is a Jessie J. Finger Memorial Law Scholarship recipient.

The annual event is an important one for the law school, as it provides an opportunity for scholarship donors and recipients to interact. The luncheon also serves as a platform for fellowship, as well as celebrating the hard work of law students throughout the academic year and the foresight of Campbell Law donors.

Third-year student Kevin Littlejohn, a recipient of the Paul & Dee M. Strickland Scholarship, spoke to the importance of his scholarship and law school benefactors, elaborating on the substantial benefit that his scholarship has afforded him in pursuing a law degree including participating on three national award-winning advocacy teams.

Another third-year student, Carlie Spencer, is the recipient of the Alumni at Womble Bond Scholarship. She said she chose Campbell Law over two competitor schools because when she attended Admitted Students Day, the law school felt like a family. “A lot of law schools say they are a ‘family.’ However, at Campbell Law, no one said that, it just showed.”
