Fulton '08 Receives Wythe Award


Sarah A. Fulton '08, outgoing Student Bar Association (SBA) president, received the George Wythe Award during the Law School's graduation ceremony on May 11. The award is named in honor of George Wythe - William & Mary's and the nation's first professor of law - and is given to a member of the student body for selfless service to the Law School community.

In her remarks, Butler said that Fulton toiled tirelessly for SBA and for other groups such as the William and Mary Journal of Women and the Law and the Moot Court program. She commended her contributions to a wide variety of endeavors, ranging from the faculty hiring committee to the admission program. Butler quoted a member of the Law School community as having praised Fulton's "selfless leadership." "She has tremendous skill when it comes to uniting the school ... Her service to this school is priceless."

The dean added that Fulton was a standout among student leaders. "Only a few [SBA presidents] have touched the lives of so many students, faculty, administrators and staff as Sarah has."
