Monday, June 9, 2014

Sadie Elizabeth Short was awarded the Class of 2014’s Carey/Armstrong Prize for Achievement in Public Service. The award recognizes the student with the greatest contribution to public service during his or her law school career. The prize was established by the W.P. Carey Foundation and the Armstrong family in demonstration of their long-standing motto of “doing good while doing well.”  The award was presented by J. Samuel Armstrong IV, as representative of the Armstrong family—strong supporters and friends of the College of Law.

Sadie graduated cum laude from ASU with a B.A. in Philosophy. During college, she volunteered with non-profit organizations to help raise awareness concerning environmental issues. While in law school, Sadie was an articles editor for the Sports and Entertainment Law Journal and gained practical experience in diverse legal settings, including The Nature Conservancy, the Family Violence Bureau of Maricopa County Attorney’s Office, and a local civil litigation firm.

Through her volunteer internships and other pro bono work, Sadie earned the law school’s Highest Pro Bono Distinction, recording almost 800 hours of pro bono work while in law school. Sadie intends to work in public service after graduation.
