Congratulations to our BarBri Silent Auction Winners!!

Congratulations to the winners of the BarBri Silent Auction.  Brandi Melvin and Nancy Vinsel will each receive a $1,500 certificate good towards the BarBri Bar Review Course.  The proceeds of the silent auction will be used to fund the BarBri Fellowship at the Kentucky Department of Public Advocacy for the summer of 2012.  We especially want to thank BarBri for their generous donation of these certificates.  Without them, this fellowship would not be possible.
