JENNY RUNKLES AWARDEES   2Ls Samantha (Sami) Hall and Danielle (Dani) Krumholz were named the 2013 Jenny Runkles Award recipients during a Nov. 7 banquet at the Original Cottage Inn sponsored by Michigan Law's Women Law Students Association. The award was established in Runkle's honor after her death from an automobile accident in 2001 following her 2L year. Runkles was known for her commitment to improving the Law School community, and society as a whole, through her devotion to public interest and diversity. Nominees must be 2Ls and possess those same characteristics. The winners receive a $500 scholarship.
