"I am so grateful for the generous support from the G. Rollie White Trust. Because of this scholarship, I have been able to pursue my passion for public service and have seen first-hand the positive impact that lawyers can have in our communities. Moreover, this new scholarship is evidence of Texas Law’s growing commitment to public interest law and public service. I’m so proud to have joined the amazing community of students, faculty, and alumni here."
