The Board of Directors and Friends of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Mason (OLLI) has awarded the Department of Criminology, Law and Society (CLS) scholarship funding in recognition of outstanding teaching services and support provided by CLS faculty to OLLI. OLLI offers intellectual and cultural experiences to Northern Virginia residents in their retirement years. A number of CLS faculty members were recognized in the award letter as having taught OLLI classes and contributed to OLLI special events. OLLI asked that the funds be used for scholarship awards to students affiliated with CLS who have distinguished themselves academically. The CLS Department chose one undergraduate CLS major, Margaret McClure, and one CLS graduate student, Amy Dezember, to be the recipients of the OLLI funds. Both students have achieved extraordinary results in their academic pursuits at Mason, and the CLS Department is glad to honor them with these scholarship funds. Congratulations to Ms. McClure and Ms. Dezember, and thanks to the OLLI Board for awarding these funds to the CLS Department.
