Although Pepperdine sits in Los Angeles County, we have a strong connection with our neighbors in Ventura County. Greg Totten, who serves as the district attorney in Ventura County, is a Pepperdine Law alum. In addition, several members of the judiciary and many attorneys in Ventura County are also part of the Pepperdine family.
For several years now, the CPA/Law Society of Ventura County, a collection of mostly CPA’s and attorneys, has included Pepperdine Law in its annual scholarship luncheon. Today, I have the honor of attending the luncheon in Camarillo to introduce several of our students as recipients of this year’s scholarship awards. It will be an honor to introduce Kelsey Maher (one of my teaching fellows in the Academic Success Program), Conor Meeks, and the married student combo of Jacob and Morgan Franz.
