Teague Campbell Awards Two Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Scholarships
Teague Campbell is proud to announce that Anyah Barber, currently in her second year Wake Forest University School of Law, and Marissa Dunsmore, currently in her second year at Campbell School of Law, have been selected as recipients of the Charlotte W. Clark Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Scholarship. Ms. Barber and Ms. Dunsmore were selected from an impressive group of qualified applicants for their focus on education and advocacy.
Ms. Barber chose to attend Wake Forest School of Law after realizing minorities were underrepresented in STEM programs in both high schools and undergraduate programs. More specifically, she grew interested in Education Law while attending Clemson University after seeing first hand how minority students were treated differently in educational settings. Ms. Barber held a summer internship at the Forsyth County Public Defender’s Office, worked as a summer clerk for a small real estate firm and is currently the Winston-Salem/Forsyth Count School Board of Education Minute Taker. She is the Secretary and Treasurer of the Black Law Students Association and a member of the First Generation Law Students. She is also involved in several pro bono projects.
Ms. Dunsmore has a passion for dance and received related scholarships and awards while attending East Carolina University for her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts in Dance Education. After graduation, she became a dance teacher and coach at a local high school. Unfortunately, she found many roadblocks working in the school system, especially around funding for the fine arts department. At that point she decided to begin her journey to fight those roadblocks outside of the classroom. Over the last few years, Ms. Dunsmore has worked as an Office Assistant for a family law firm and held an internship with a civil litigation law firm. Currently at Campbell University School of Law she is ranked at the top of her class and was the recipient of the Dean’s Excellence Scholarship. She is currently a Staff Member for the Campbell Law Review and a Teaching Scholar for Torts.
Ms. Barber, first place winner, and Ms. Dunsmore, second place winner, were presented with their scholarship checks and certificates at Teague Campbell’s Raleigh office. Members of Charlotte Clark’s family were also in attendance during the presentation. A luncheon was then held for the winners afterwards. We wish both women all the best in their future endeavors.
