Winstead’s JD Scholarship Reception in Houston


Winstead attorneys and members of UH Law Center gathered for a reception in the Houston office on April 27, to honor Mariana Yee-Trejo, a student from the University of Houston (UH) Law Center and one of the 2015 Winstead Juris Doctor Scholarship winners.  The reception provided a chance for Winstead attorneys and representatives from UH Law Center to honor the winner.  The Winstead Juris Doctor Scholarship is a program designed to enhance the recruitment of diverse candidates at Texas law schools.  Winstead awards three scholarships annually to first-year, underrepresented, diverse students at SMU, UH and UT.  In addition to a cash award, each winner is offered a position in Winstead's 2016 Summer Associate Program and Winstead donates a check to the student organization of choice on behalf of the winner.  For the Houston reception, the Hispanic Law Students Association at UH received a $1,500 check on behalf of Yee-Trejo from Winstead at the reception.

This was the final reception for 2015.  The Dallas and Austin receptions were held the previous week.
