BALTIMORE—A team from Womble Bond Dickinson’s Baltimore office attended the 44th Annual Scholarship and Awards Banquet of the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) at the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. The firm was a Silver Sponsor of the event.
Womble Bond Dickinson attendees included Baltimore Office Managing Partner Barry Herman, attorneys Ginny Barnhart, Newt Fowler and Sarah Meyer and Womble Bond Dickinson Scholar/2019 summer associate Chukwukpee Nzegwu. Under Armour in-house counsel Jen Riso and Nick Hawkins and Francis King Carey School of Law Assistant Dean for Career Development Dana Morris also joined the team at the Womble Bond Dickinson table.
The BLSA banquet was particularly noteworthy for the Womble Bond Dickinson team, as Nzegwu won the BLSA’s Unsung Hero Award.
The theme for the BLSA banquet was “Honoring the Past, Treasuring the Future.” With this in mind, the banquet celebrated the “triumphs of the trailblazers who came before us while emphasizing our responsibility to continue their work of laying the foundation for those to come.” The banquet was held Feb. 28 at the University of Maryland Baltimore SMC Campus Center.
