Earl Warren Scholars Gather

Last night, alumni of the  NAACP Legal Defense Fund scholarship programs gathered to honor the 2011 scholarship recipients. Alumni of both the Earl Warren Scholarship and the Lehman Scholarship were in attendance. I received an Earl Warren Scholarship in 1975 which helped me attend Vanderbilt Law School.

It feels really weird to be a walking history lesson, but that is what it felt like to be in that room. Those scholarships really made a difference when a difference needed to be made.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund is making a concerted effort to locate and connect past scholarship recipients with each other. Cynthia Burt is chair of the effort to raise funds so that the scholarships can continue. If you receive a letter from her, please respond positively.

If you are an Earl Warren Scholar or a Lehman Scholar, please visit the NAACP Legal Defense Fund website and become an active participant with this amazing group of people. Find out what you can do to help the next generation of scholars.
