Tennessee Bar honors University of Memphis law student

I think that the Tennessee Bar Association is doing a great thing by honoring this law student.
Betsy Prendergast, a third-year law student at the University of Memphis, recently received the Law Student Volunteer of the Year Award at the Tennessee Bar Association's annual public service luncheon in Nashville. The TBA selected Prendergast as the Tennessee law school student who has provided outstanding volunteer service by working with an organization that's dedicated to representing the indigent - in this case, Memphis' Community Legal Center, a nonprofit organization housed within the Metropolitan Inter-Faith Association.
It's a little like teaching your children about family values. They do tend to remember what you teach, and they really like it when they are praised. Here, it looks like the honoree, Ms. Prendergast, also has a lot to teach many of us in the legal profession about values. The rest of the story is here.
