Law student Michelle Wright received the first Mike Larkin Scholarship, awarded at the inaugural Mike Larkin Memorial Lecture on 11 March.
The R8 000 scholarship, which was renamed from the Law Students' Council (LSC) Scholarship, is awarded to a final-year law student who has made some contribution to wider society.
Wright had launched a matric enrichment programme for learners on Saturday mornings, taught by law students.
As she is now in Johannesburg doing her articles, her mother Sue Wright, a staff member in the Faculty of Law, received the award on her behalf from LSC president Lusanda Gwayi and the dean, Prof PJ Schwikkard.
