the ASBA Legal Education Scholarship Award was presented to Ms. Su’e Tervola of the J. Reuben Clark College of Law, at Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah. A check for $1,000.00 was presented to Ms. Tervola on behalf of the membership of the ASBA to assist with funding her legal education.
Ms. Tervola will be entering her second year of law school this fall semester. The Scholarship Committee, having reviewed her credentials and submissions for the Award, was impressed with her academic performance and her spirit of service to her community. Although Ms. Tervola is not a resident of American Samoa, she has strong ties to the Territory as her family hails from the village of Leone.
Ms. Tervola wishes to convey to the ASBA her sincerest appreciation and heartfelt fa’afetai for selecting her as this year’s recipient and for the financial assistance. Ms. Tervola hopes to return to American Samoa next year to seek a summer internship with one of the Government offices.
