A little blast from the past ... #Repost @littlekope0903 with @repostapp My dad's plaque from when he was a law student at Tulane. He won the moot court trial competition in 1984 when he was a law student which was an honor and not to mention a lot of hard work. Because of that, his name will be forever engraved in marble at the Tulane law school. And today, I saw it for the first time :-).
