KHOP Closing Reception 2014
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Aug 12, 2014
On Friday, we had a closing reception and lunch for the Summer 2014 King Hall Outreach Program. It is designed to prepare undergraduates for the rigorous law school application process. The wonderful group of students -- Margaret Nguyen (CSU East Bay), Karen Pedraza (St. Mary’s), Miguel Velasco (UC Davis), Wendy Zeng (Mills College) -- gave poised presentations on public policy topics of their choice. Each of the topics drew on each of the student’s amazing life experiences. It was truly inspirational! Students at lunch raved about the eye-opening two-summer experience at King Hall.
All were definitely impressed with a visit to the Sacramento County Superior Court where Judge Larry Brown '89 talked with them and presided over a few matters that they watched. After lunch, each of the students received a certificate of participation and some nifty remembrances of King Hall. KHOP is a special program and we all are hopeful that we will soon see them enrolled in UC Davis School of Law.
