Pro Bono Students of the Summer

The Office of Public Service would like to recognize Aiyanah Simms, Brett Blayer, and Courtney Tarnow for their dedication to the MJC and MVLCs this summer! 

Aiyanah Simms is the May 2022 Pro Bono Student of the Month for her commitment to the United Community Center MVLC. Aiyanah jumped into a leadership role at the UCC at the start of the summer clinic session and quickly became an integral member of the facilitation team: helping with client check-in, responding to client questions, jumping in to assist volunteer attorneys, and offering ideas on how to better facilitate this busy clinic. We are grateful for Aiyanah's leadership, flexibility, and confidence this summer and beyond!

The Expungement and Pardon Clinic would like to congratulate Brett Blayer on being the Pro Bono Student of the Month for the month of June. Despite receiving training materials after the first day of clinic, Brett jumped into our Part 1 clinic eager to learn and assist our clients with assessing their post-conviction relief options. He also assisted our clinic with our very first Community Classroom event for the summer at the Mitchell Street Library. Brett volunteered on a weekly basis in both our Part 1 and Part 2 clinics this summer. We are grateful for Brett's work this summer!

The MVLC at the MJC would like to recognize Courtney Tarnow as Pro Bono Student of the Month for July. Courtney has demonstrated outstanding leadership as Student Advisory Board member at the Thursday morning clinic during the busy summer clinic season! Without hesitation, Courtney expertly managed clinic several times during the month of July when other clinic supervisors were out. We are grateful for her dedication, skill, and leadership. Courtney has been essential to clinic running smoothly and effectively, even when things didn’t go as planned.
