The induction will take place at 4 p.m. Friday, May 2nd at the Texas Tech School of Law’s Lanier Auditorium.

The West Texas Legal Legends scholarship program was established in 2004 by Tech Law graduate Wayne Reaud.
Wayne Reaud and his wife Dana established endowed scholarships to honor attorneys such as John F. “Buddy” Maner, W. Frank Newton, Travis D. Shelton, W. Royal Furgeson Jr., Forrest Bowers, and now Milam and Hance.
Each scholarship requires a minimum endowment of $250,000, and are awarded to law students based on academic promise and commitment to service. They are the most prestigious scholarships offered by Tech law.
The event is open to the public, and attendees are asked to RSVP to Laura Urquieta, director of alumni relations at 834-0286.
