The National Notary Association presented a donation to Campbell University School of Law’s Sol Marshall Scholarship Fund on Wednesday, Mar. 14, 2007.Established in 1999, the scholarship fund was named in honor of Sol Marshall, the late husband of North Carolina Secretary of State Elaine Marshall. Both were graduates of Campbell University’s Norman A. Wiggins School of Law.Secretary Marshall received the NNA’s March Fong Eu Achievement Award last year. Each year, the NNA makes a $1,000 contribution to the charity of the award winner’s choice. Marshall presented the check to Campbell Law School Dean Melissa Essary and Executive Associate Dean Keith Faulkner during a ceremony at the Radisson Hotel in Research Triangle Park.”Secretary Elaine Marshall and North Carolina are leading the country in giving Notaries the necessary tools to authenticate electronic documents,” said Timothy Reiniger, Executive Director of the National Notary Association. “The standard she has successfully established in North Carolina requires that notarized electronic documents be both legally reliable and trustworthy for all third party users. Her desire to preserve the evidentiary foundations of our legal system is resonating throughout the country.”Now in her third term as Secretary of State, Marshall became the first woman elected to the North Carolina Council of State in 1996. Before being elected Secretary of State, Marshall represented the 15th District as a state senator.Campbell University School of Law is a highly demanding, purposely small, intensely personal community of faculty and students whose aim, guided by transcendent values, is to develop lawyers who possess moral conviction, social compassion, and professional competence and who view the practice of law as a calling to serve others and to create a more just society.
