awards ceremony

Schuylar Casto, Jason Marshall, Jimmy Sedam awarded IU McKinney School of Law scholarships

Two recent University of Indianapolis graduates and a graduating senior are the recipients of distinguished scholarships awarded by IU McKinney School of Law to Department Majors for the 2018-19 academic year.

Schuylar Casto ’18 (History, political science, pre-law minor, Honors College) has been awarded the Kennedy Scholar. Named for United States Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, this is the law school’s top scholarship. It is given to one incoming student each year.  Schuylar is the first University of Indianapolis student to receive this prestigious award.

Jason Marshall ’17 (Political science, pre-law minor) and Jimmy Sedam ’17 (Political science and pre-law minor) have been named as University of Indianapolis Law Scholars.  Established in 2017 between the Pre-Law Student Association and IU McKinney, this eminent award is given to one University of Indianapolis student or alumni matriculating to the law school each year.  However, this year two outstanding candidates emerged and both received the honor.  Marshall and Sedam are the first University of Indianapolis Law Scholars.

“These three terrific students headline a banner year and outstanding class for the Pre-Law Student Association,” Dr. David Root, Assistant Professor of Political Science and Pre-Law Advisor said. “We are all tremendously proud of them and wish them the best of luck.”
