Several students from the UA Little Rock Bowen School of Law are being recognized for their numerous hours of public service during the 2017-18 academic year.
A Bowen student who completes 100 hours of public service during a 12-month period in which the student is in good standing at the law school is awarded a Dean’s Certificate of Public Service while a student who completes 300 hours of public service during a 12-month period is awarded the Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Public Service.
Bowen students who earned a Dean’s Certificate for Public Service include Pamela Abrams, Cory Bates, Kyla Bishop, and Mallory Floyd.
Bowen students who earned a Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Public Service include Samantha Davidson, Sharnea Diggs, Mackenzie Ivy, Kaylyn Hager, Zachary Hale, and Daina Rodriguez.
The goal of the program is to make students more aware of community service opportunities and encourage students to make service a part of their professional lives.
Some of the projects and organizations Bowen students volunteer at include Habitat for Humanity, Law Students for Literacy, VITA/TCE (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance/Tax Counseling for the Elderly), Race for the Cure, CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) training, Advocates for Battered Women training, and work days at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
