Monday Morning Message 11.1.21 The Opportunity to Fulfill My Destiny.

Posted 2021-11-01 10:45am

Words cannot express the gratitude I have for the scholarship you have so kindly decided to offer me…You have given me the opportunity to fulfill my destiny.”  -1L Student

For a number of our students, a scholarship makes the difference between getting a legal education or sacrificing their dream.

That’s why I’m asking you this week to make a donation. Why this week?

This Friday evening we have a special opportunity not only to honor our distinguished 2021 C|M|LAW Hall of Fame Honorees and our 2021 Leader on the RiseKimberly Kendall Corral '12, but also to raise much-needed funds for scholarships for first year students.

Please join us this Friday - November 5, 5:30pm - for our 4th Annual C|M|LAW Hall of Fame Celebration.

This special annual celebration is an outgrowth of our covenant with our students, faculty, staff, graduates, and community to hold true to our commitments and traditions, dedicated to diversity, opportunity, excellence, and civic responsibility.

Every day we educate and train the future custodians of our democracy and guardians of justice. It’s a sacred trust that we take very seriously.

Please make a contribution or pledge this week to our November 5 Hall of Fame celebration. It will be virtual, so you can watch from the comfort of your home or office. Just make a donation or pledge of any amount by Friday morning, and we’ll send you a Zoom link!

Please visit to purchase tickets, sponsorships, or an ad in our program book in honor of one or more of the 2021 inductees, or to just donate to the Hall of Fame, text JUSTICE to 216-400-5145.

The Hall of Fame celebration is the only annual fundraising event sponsored by the law school. 

Our mission never has been more vital; our need for support never has been more important.

Thank you very much to our generous sponsors to date, listed here:

f you have any questions about the Hall of Fame, please do not hesitate to contact me, Ellen GreveyAssistant Dean for Advancement (, Amy Miller, Director of Donor/Alumni Relations (, or Ashley PresuttoAssistant Director of Advancement ( 

Our mission is to graduate students who are not only successful professionals, but also leaders, change makers, and advocates of justice…and maybe someday, a legend in our Hall of Fame.
