St. John's School of Law
Lauren’s confidence and ambition made her a perfect candidate for the Law Profession. These qualities, along with her passion for helping others, lead her to pursue her dream career at St. John’s University School of Law. Although Lauren was only able to attend Law School for one week, she made such an impact on the staff that they set up a scholarship in her name and a memorial bench on campus. We would like to thank the entire St. John’s University School of Law. Their compassion and continued assistance in keeping Lauren’s name alive means so much to all of us here at the Lauren Nicole Marcus Foundation, and to Lauren’s loved ones. Michael Simons, the Dean of St. Johns Law, let the incoming 2014 law students know within their first week of classes what an enthusiastic person Lauren was and about the heart wrenching accident that took her away from us. He explained to the students all the details of the scholarship that was started by Lauren’s family & the Foundation. This scholarship gives another student who may not have otherwise been able to, a chance to be as enthusiastic about Law School as Lauren was. The Lauren Nicole Marcus scholarship will be awarded to students with an exceptional work ethic, but for whom financial constraints may have prevented them from realizing their own dreams of attending Law School. She spent her last day at St. John’s volunteering for their Annual Service Day which shows her commitment to helping others as well as her relentless work ethic.
The Lauren Nicole Marcus Foundation would like the thank The St. John's University school of Law Women's Law Society for their fundraising efforts from their bake sale. 100% of their proceeds were generously donated to The Lauren Nicole Marcus Foundation.
A special thank you to Michael Simons, Phil Maroney, Theresa Hallet, and Robert Harrison.
