First Recipient of St. Thomas School of Law Larkin Scholarship Honored


Ana Chilingarishvili, first-time recipient of the Jim and Barbara Larkin Scholarship, was born in the Republic of Georgia.  Her childhood was defined by war, but amidst these hardships, she believed she would one day study in America.  Ana received her undergraduate degree from Augsburg College, where she majored in International Relations.  Ana has a passion for human rights, which is befitting of Jim and Barbara Larkin.  Bob Hoffman offered comments honoring his co-founder, Jim Larkin, and Dean of St. Thomas School of Law, Thomas Mengler, spoke of Ana's academic qualifications and personal experiences.

The Larkin Scholarship is funded, in part, by Larkin Hoffman employees, the Larkin Hoffman Foundation, Larkin family members, the Al McQuinn family and the University of St. Thomas.
