According to Ruma Perez, who nominated Yruegas for the honor, “Whether you are a coworker, part of her staff, or one of the many families she serves through her charity work, the feelings are the same: no one compares to Jennifer for compassion, dedication, and integrity.”

Jones, recipient of the scholarship, is preparing to enter her third year at Lewis &  Clark. She is on the National Native American Law Students Association (NNALSA) Board and is a member of the NNALSA moot court team.
