Lisa Morinelli has been awarded the first annual Bennett G. Hornstein Memorial Scholarship.

She is president of the Equal Justice Society, treasurer of the International Law Society, and a member of the Delta Theta Phi Law Fraternity and the Student Bar Association.

The Scholarship Committee attributed her award to her remarkable grade point average, worldly experience traveling abroad in Nicaragua, China and Ireland and public service experience studying abroad and at home
The family of the late Bennett G. Hornstein established the Bennett G. Hornstein Endowment Fund in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Omaha Foundation to fund this annual scholarship for an aspiring law student who is a dedicated, selfless individual committed to public service in the legal community. This candidate must display a high standard of academic achievement, an adventurous spirit, and a desire to take an active role in helping the underprivileged community. Applicants must also be attending law school at the University of Nebraska or Creighton University.
