State Supreme Court Chief Justice Gary Wade has established a scholarship at the University of Tennessee College of Law to support students interested in public service careers. The Justice Gary R. Wade Endowed Scholarship will be open to Tennessee residents with financial need and a strong interest in public service. "I've been honored to hold a public office since I was 28 years old," said Wade. "Civic education is so important to all citizens of our country. I wanted to create a scholarship to help those who want to earn and use a law degree to help their local government and community."
