Thanks to a generous $100,000.00 challenge pledge from Jim Theriac, the Theriac-Moore Families Scholarship Fund has been created to promote diversity among the law student population. Alumni Kendall Moore (JD 95) and Jim Theriac (JD 74) are very enthusiastic about the project and hope this scholarship fund will have an everlasting effect on the student body and future practitioners.

Announced at the Black Law Students Association-Alumni Reunion Weekend in Orlando in March by Dean Robert Jerry and BLSA President Jonathan Blocker to the students, faculty and alumni in attendance, the funds will be used to establish an endowed scholarship for students of the law school to increase and improve interaction across social lines of gender, race, generation, geography and class for the college.

"Jim's commitment, which also honors the family of his good friend Kendall Moore, is a promise to match the first $100,000 pledged or donated to this scholarship fund," said Dean Robert Jerry. "I hope that our alumni and friends will rise to this challenge and take advantage of this match -- plus, we hope, an eventual state match as well -- to leverage their own gifts to this important fund and purpose. This could become our largest endowment to enhance diversity in the student body."
