Appointing three new Larraine Segil Scholars for 2016- amazing women with great futures!


I am proud to announce that our 2016 scholars have been selected and are now part of the Larraine Segil Scholars group. We hold our quarterly dinner in late September to celebrate. Look out for another picture then of our happy group!

From The Presidential Key Executive MBA Program  at Pepperdine Graziadio School of Management, Pamela Irwin who just graduated this summer, has been selected to join our LSS group.Pamela Irwin

From Southwestern School of Law, Jessica Reid and Venessa Simpson, both JD candidates, have both been selected to join the LSS group.

If you go to our website at you will find all of their photos and links to their detailed backgrounds – we have great hopes for their futures!

This year for the first time the Scholars interviewed and selected the candidates. All finalists were prescreened and presented after lots of hard work by Debbie Leathers Associate Dean at Southwestern, and Kay Rosen, VP Development at Pepperdine. Because we could not decide between Jessica and Venessa, as in former years when we had two outstanding finalists, we chose them both! My goal of making the selection process independent of myself, came to fruition this year ensuring the scholar group will be sustainable past my life span.  Very rewarding and exciting for all.
