Cooley hosts honors convocation


 Cooley Law School’s Auburn Hills campus recognized six students during its recent Honors Convocation. Students were recognized with the Alumni Distinguished Student Award, Student Great Deeds Award, and the Leadership Achievement Award.

Stephen Madej received the Alumni Distinguished Student Award, an honor dedicated each term to outstanding graduating students. 
While at Cooley, Madej earned the Certificate of Merit in Research & Writing and has consistently earned spots on the Dean’s List and Honor Roll. He served as a research assistant for Professor Florise Neville-Ewell, worked as a legal intern for the Genesee County Circuit Court in the Family Division and Juvenile Referee Unit, competed in mock trials, served on the executive board and board of editors of Cooley’s Moot Court, and was symposium editor for the Cooley Law Review.
Matthew Flynn was awarded the Student Great Deeds Award, which recognizes students who have demonstrated outstanding commitment to serving others. Nominations are accepted by classmates, staff, faculty, or members of the community, who have witnessed students going above and beyond in the area of public service, whether through long-term commitment or through a single act of great service.
Stephanie Walczak, Natalia Hanna, Germese Gee, and Christos Moutousis, were chosen to receive the school’s Leadership Achievement Award. The award acknowledges those students who have consistently, comprehensively, and effectively provided leadership in a variety of capacities. This award is intended to be the culmination of a student’s participation in leadership activities while attending Cooley.
