University of Tennessee College of Law alumnus Carl Colloms has committed $1.15 million over seven years to provide scholarship funding for UT Law students. This gift will grow the Judge Carl E. Colloms Scholarship endowment to one of the largest in college history. Colloms, a Charleston, Tennessee, native, has designated his gift to benefit students from southeast Tennessee. He began his career as a solo practitioner in 1966 and quickly distinguished himself as a leader in the community. He served as a county attorney for more than five years and was the youngest county leader in the state during his term as mayor in Bradley County.
