Mark Thompson, ’14 (Law School Alumni Scholarship Fund)

Hometown: Columbus, Ohio

I am a second-year law student from Columbus, Ohio, and I received my BA in Political Science from Miami University in 2011. This scholarship is one of many daily reminders that I chose the perfect place to begin my legal career, and it has motivated me to make the most out of this wonderful opportunity.  The scholarship will help me to use my time at the Law School as a stepping stone to a lengthy career in law, during which I look forward to impacting the lives of law students in the ways this scholarship has impacted mine. I believe the scholarship is a reflection of the great sense of community I have enjoyed at the Law School, which is essential to its enduring nature as a place where ideas thrive.  I am both honored and incredibly thankful to receive a scholarship from this fund and to be associated with our alumni donors.
