Loneshia SheltonCongrats, Loneshia!

The hiring of Loneshia Shelton, '17, right, as the Legal & Benefits Specialist with the Veterans First program at Friendship Place, is a nice example of efficacy of the UDC Law experiential program in both providing relevant experience and, ultimately, employment opportunity.  Loneshia, herself a veteran, first volunteered for Veterans First through the UDC Law Community Service Program.  She did so well there that when her supervisor ultimately needed to replace himself, she was the logical hire!

This situation also serves as an example of alumni engagement, as Cecilia Perry, '93 and her late classmate, Mikiko ("Miki") Stebbing, got us involved with Veterans First and Cecilia continued to volunteer there until this year.

Unfortunately, Miki died several years ago. The School of Law was honored to host her Memorial, deeply appreciative of her bequest of $25K for scholarships.
