It gives me great pleasure to announce the 2015 winners of the LEX Essay Competition. This year we had eighteen (18) applications and five winners (5). They are:
Karen Marroquin, San Jacinto College - North Campus

Christine Oldham, Mount San Antonio College

This year the five scholarship winners will be invited to present/discuss their papers at a forum/roundtable moderated by me at the 2015 AAfPE National Conference in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Also, this year for the first time, we have a second-time winner of the scholarship: Karen Marroquin, from San Jacinto College - North Campus, who joined us last year in Las Vegas. The Committee was most impressed with this accomplishment, and we hope she will join us again this year with all the other winners in Milwaukee.
