Two Touro Law Part-Time Students Selected for Prestigious Scholarship.

Central Islip, NY – Touro Law Center has announced that Bruce McBrien and Robert Mitchell have been selected to receive the prestigious Susan M. Dietrich Clyne Scholarships for the 2010-2011 academic year. These students, both entering their third year in the part time division, were selected from a competitive pool of applicants.

Susan M. Dietrich Clyne was a 1988 graduate of Touro Law Center in the part-time evening division. Sue was tragically lost in the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. She was married with 4 young children. The family has provided the naming gift for the Susan Dietrich Clyne Computer Lab and, in her honor, the Law Center together with the Clyne family established the Annual Susan M. Dietrich Clyne ’88 Memorial Golf Outing with the proceeds dedicated to fund Scholarships in her name. Two scholarships are awarded, each providing one $10,000 award for a part-time evening Touro Law Center student whose busy job and family responsibilities are similar to Sue's lifestyle when she was a student.

“These scholarships are a great way to honor the memory of Susan and help other Touro Law students who are as dedicated and hard working as she was,” said Dean Lawrence Raful.

Recipients will be recognized at the annual Susan M. Dietrich Clyne Golf Outing, which will be held on September 19, 2011 at the Hamlet Golf and Country Club.
