An endowed scholarship has been established by Patti Moss Melker Richards in honor of her mother, LaVerne Lewis Moss. Patti began her legal education at the LSU Law Center in 1987. After her first semester, she was awarded a tuition waiver based on merit and financial need. She vowed never to forget what the Law Center did to enable her to complete her education. This scholarship is given annually to a full-time student with preference given to a single parent.
