Loyola at a Glance

College of Law long-time employee honored today

November 19, 2010

The Loyola University New Orleans College of Law will hold a reception at 3 p.m. today in Room 343 to pay tribute to one of its longest-standing employees, Semora “Lola” Davis.

Davis, the assistant director of law admissions, retired last year after working at the university for 38 years. The tribute will help raise money for a scholarship in Davis’ name, created by the Black Law Student Association. The scholarship is awarded to two African-American first-year law students who exhibit an interest and commitment to public service and/or to Loyola BLSA activities.

“Lola worked with Loyola’s BLSA chapter from the time she arrived at Loyola. This was BLSA’s way of memorializing her immeasurable contributions to BLSA and African-American students at the law school,” said Michele Allison-Davis, assistant dean of admissions in the College of Law.

For more information or to donate to the scholarship, visit here, or contact Alice Glenn at 504-861-5555 or jdalumni@loyno.edu.
