Concilio of Yolo County Awards Dinner and Fundraiser
Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Oct 15, 2017
UC Davis School of Law had a great showing at the 33rd Annual Mexican American Concilio of Yolo County Recognition Dinner and Scholarship Fundraiser in Davis on Saturday, October 15. Professor Holly Cooper and her family were in attendance. Professor Cooper was honored with the Community Award for her amazing work for immigrants. Many clinic students were in attendance including Jessica Martinez, Angela Breinig, Mayra Sandoval, Estela Barajas, and Sara Ehsani-Nia. I was pleased to receive the Rick Gonzales Sr. Award for my work.
The highlight of the evening was hearing from the 14 scholarship recipients, who told inspirational stories about the challenges they have overcome and what they plan to do. I hope to see some of them at UC Davis School of Law some day!
