Posted on Categories Marquette Law School, Pro Bono, Public

Professor Vada Waters Lindsey today was honored by the United States Postal Service as a one of fourteen “Women Putting Their Stamp on Metro Milwaukee.”  Professor Lindsey was honored in the Government Service or Law category for her tireless work on the Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program, which program has served more than 1,000 people in six years at Marquette University Law School.  Aside from coordinating the program, Professor Lindsey also trains all the student volunteers who assist with the tax preparation.  The MULS VITA site has a 100 percent accuracy rate.

Professor Lindsey received her award today at a luncheon at the Country Inn in Waukesha. Congratulations, Professor Lindsey.

  1. Congratulations, Professor Lindsey! For years I have seen you work many, many weekends making the VITA program a success. Few people are probably aware of how many hours you put in so that our students will have this opportunity to learn and serve taxpayers. Without your expertise, talent, and the time you put in, the VITA program at Marquette wouldn’t be what it is. What wonderful news to see your leadership and service recognized.

  2. Congratulations Prof. Lindsey! What a great model for many of us, for our students, and our community. Enjoy this well-deserved honor!
