Justice Antonin Scalia Leaves His Mark On The Ozarks
|Former Ambassador Ken Blackwell &|
the late SCOTUS Justice Anonin Scalia
Dr. Meyers will be announcing the dedication of the U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia Criminal Justice Institute at ASUMH which is located in the North Central Ozarks (God's County).
Myers said the university had planned on hosting a dedication ceremony for Scalia last year when Scalia was scheduled to return to Mountain Home to hunt and fish. However, Scalia died in his sleep at age 79 on the night of February 12, or the morning of February 13, 2016, following an afternoon of quail hunting and dining at Cibolo Creek Ranch in Shafter, Texas.
ASUMH and the community were very impressed by Justice Scalia visit to the Ozarks and his willingness to share with students and the community. Meyers noted, "Students at ASUMH were the beneficiaries of numerous events that Justice Scalia made available to them. While in our area, Justice Scalia lectured for classes and addressed the community in an event titled “A Conversation with U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.”
This author and his wife attended the mentioned "packed event" at ASUMH to hear Justice Scalia comments and his responses to questions. Link to addition comments by or about Justice Scalia. I recommend the article by Former Ambassador Ken Blackwell.
Hopefully, we can expect more universities to follow suit. Dr. Walter Williams shared on May 17, 2016 that George Mason University School of Law has just been renamed the Antonin Scalia School of Law in honor of the late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
