At the San Antonio Bar Association luncheon on Jan. 28, St. Mary’s University School of Law student Kimbell Ward was presented with the AT&T Excellence in Pro Bono Award.

Ward is the first recipient of the award given by AT&T, a staunch supporter of pro bono efforts in San Antonio. Through the establishment of this award, AT&T will offer a St. Mary’s law student a scholarship in exchange for five hours of work a week for the  Community Justice Program.

According to the Bar Association, Ward was selected because of her high class ranking, a letter from a mentor, her essay about the importance of pro bono efforts and her volunteer efforts at Texas RioGrande Legal Aid and Catholic Charities Call-a-Lawyer.  A second-year law student at St. Mary’s, Ward has served as president of the St. Mary’s Criminal Defense Law Bar.
