Five African-American students from the Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law were honored
recently by the Black Law Students Association. The Kenneth Maurice Cox Donning of
the Kente ceremony recognized them for their contributions to the law school’s academic,
cultural and professional environments. The ceremony is named in honor of one of the
law school’s first African-American graduates.
The honorees pictured are, from left, Chandra Madison of Alton, Ill.; Adraine Harris, LaChina Algers and Joseph McKinney,
all of Memphis; and Jennifer Haile-Ojwang of Louisville, Ky.
Haile-Ojwang will graduate in August. The other four students graduated in a May 8
ceremony at the Cannon Center for the Performing Arts.
