Chrissy Kendall and John Roberts

Chrissy Kendall (’11)  was honored in the spring by the Supreme Court Historical Society with the award of the student Hughes Gossett Literary Prize for her article "Because of His Spotless Integrity of Character, The Story of Salmon P. Chase: Cabinets, Courts and Currencies."

The award is given to recognize the accomplishments of those who work to preserve the history of the Court and contribute to the Society's educational mission. Kendall's article was written as part of her legal history seminar with Professor Ross Davies and was submitted for the prize prior to her graduation from the law school in May 2011.

Kendall's award was presented to her at the Supreme Court Historical Society's 36th Annual Meeting in June and was conferred by Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts.

The recipient of an undergraduate degree from George Mason University, Kendall holds a BA in Russian Studies and Psychology.
