The Law Scholarship Committee of Abilene Christian University announced the recipient of this year's Presidential Scholarship.

Carolyn Billings, senior biochemistry major from Greer, S.C., will receive this year's scholarship award.

"We look at the whole person and whether this will be a good person to represent the best of Abilene Christian University," said Dr. Mel Hailey, chair of the Law Schoalrship Committee and professor of political science. "Carolyn will be a good representative of the university."

The Law Scholarship Committee consists of Hailey: Dr. Brad Reid, professor of management sciences; Dr. Gaston Welborn, vice president and general counsel; Dr. Joe Cope, executive director of the ACU foundation; and Dr. Charles Trevathan, instructor of sociology and social work and associate general counsel.

The scholarship she received is one of three offered by three separate law schools solely to ACU graduates. Texas Tech and Pepperdine universities also offer a similar presidential scholarship.

Billings plans to begin law school in the fall and to use her biochemistry major by specializing in either patent or environmental law.
