Several students from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law are being recognized for their numerous hours of public service during the 2019-20 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. A student who completes 300 hours of public service during a 12-month period is awarded the Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Public Service. These hours are completed outside of the students’ normal educational, career, and family responsibilities.
Bowen students who earned a Dean’s Certificate for Public Service include Edith Chavez De Oseguera of North Little Rock and Shaquika Randolph of Little Rock.
“There is nothing more fulfilling than helping someone,” Chavez De Oseguera said. “Public service is important to build a stronger and more equitable community”
Bowen students who earned a Dean’s Certificate of Distinguished Public Service include Pamela Davis of Benton, Adam Rose of Little Rock, and Madhav Shroff of Hot Springs.
“Public service is one of Bowen’s core values,” said Theresa Beiner, Bowen’s dean. “The goal of this 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: immigration rights, My G.I.R.L.S., Saline/Perry County Foster Parent Association, U.S. Attorney’s Office, Center for Arkansas Legal Services, and the Junior Auxiliary of Saline County.
