  • Scholarship Description
  • Born and raised in Long Beach, Marion (Mimi) Deatherage practiced law and loved the game of golf. She attended Wilson High School, and obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering from the University of Colorado before attending Southwestern School of Law. After graduation from Southwestern, she joined her father's law office. During the seventeen years she spent practicing law, Mimi found time to engage her passion for the game of golf. Members of Virginia Country Club dedicated their 2005 golf fund raising event to Mimi, a fellow member who broke ground for women at Virginia by becoming its first female member in 1994. Mimi's passion was golf, and members thought it appropriate to create a scholarship supporting an aspiring law student who reflects Mimi's dedication to the practice of law and to her great love of golf.

by Susan Dutca

"It's okay to be white" signs were scattered on college campuses across the country, as well as in Canada over the past week. Reportedly, the signs were first suggested on an online chat forum called 4chan, calling on people to place posters in their area on Halloween night. At Harvard Law School, at least 20 handmade stickers with the message "It's ok to be white" were posted on light poles and electrical boxes. Harvard Law's Dean of Students Marcia Sells condemned the posters, stating the posters and stickers are "intended to divide us from one another" and that "HLS will not let that happen here."
