Belle Cummins Memorial Scholarships


I have received the following thank you notes from the 2006 recipients of the Belle Cummins Memorial Scholarships, awarded annually by AALJ to two law students.

Dale D. Glendening, Jr.
U.S. Administrative Law Judge


Dear Judge Glendening:

I am writing to express my gratitude to you and the members of the Association of Administrative law Judges for awarding me the Belle Cummins Memorial Scholarship. I am truly flattered and appreciate this recognition at the culmination of my law school career. I have greatly enjoyed my experience at Tulane Law School and I am honored to be able to add this scholarship to the memories I take with me as I leave. Administrative Law was a favorite topic of mine during the time at law school. Professor Raymond Diamond taught the administrative law course with a contagious enthusiasm and a great knowledge of the subject. My enjoyment of the administrative law course makes this recognition particularly special to me.

Furthermore, this has been a trying year for the faulty and students of Tulane Law School, and the association was very kind to offer the scholarship to a Tulane student despite the fact that you were unable to have your annual event in New Orleans.

Again, thanks so much for this honor.

Sincerely yours,

Dear Judge Glendening,

I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Association of Administrative Law Judges for their generosity in funding the Belle Cummins Memorial Scholarship. I am very proud and honored to be the recipient of this year’s award.

I am currently a second year student at Loyola Law School and actively participate in many public interest law events including interning with the Juvenile Justice Project of Louisiana and CASA. I am also clerking with a public interest firm this summer in Los Angeles.

Thank you again for the scholarship. I am extremely grateful.
