In January, 20 Regent Law students received Eagle Awards for earning the highest grade in Fall 2013 law school courses. The inaugural award is based on Isaiah 40:31.
“These awards celebrate the success of the recipients and our entire community,” says Douglas Cook, associate dean of academic affairs and student services.
“Scripture says we are to rejoice with those who rejoice, and that is exactly what it felt like at the ceremony. Our students were encouraged and spurred on to greater accomplishment by seeing the excellence of their classmates.”
Matthew Dunkley was pleasantly surprised when he learned that he was an Eagle Award recipient for Professor Bradley Jacob’s Christian Foundations of Law class.
“This award is a confirmation that I am exactly where I am supposed to be and that I am doing exactly what God has called me to do,” he says. “Although I sometimes doubt my ability to do well in law school, this award reminds me that God equips those whom He calls.”
Regent Law congratulates the following Eagle Award recipients: Constance Daly, Matthew Dunckley, Marie Louise Dienhart, Sean Reilly, Renee Knudsen, Sarah Schmidt, Kathleen Knudsen, Ann Hegburg, Marie Walch, Joel Ready, Brittany Jackson, Kevin Briggs, Darron Enns, Jeremy Smith, Kris Klingensmith, Jennifer Baumgardner, Katherine Nace, James Wheeler, Joseph Pricone, and Danielle Donner.
