Glen Alan Kyle, a third-year student at the University of Memphis Cecil C. Humphreys School of Law, is the first recipient of the Wilder Law School Scholarship, which is sponsored by BankTennessee. The bank, with offices in Memphis, Collierville and Ripley, reports that the scholarship is named in memory of former Tennessee Lt. Gov. John Wilder, a former vice chairman of its board of directors and one of its founders. The endowed scholarship will be awarded annually to a third-year University of Memphis law student and Tennessee resident who has demonstrated a commitment to public service and enhancing the common good, the Memphis Daily News reports. Kyle is from Murfreesboro. After graduation he hopes to clerk for a judge, work in elder law or bankruptcy, or serve with a government agency.
