Miricle Harris and Abigail Murray recently completed their Tucker Ellis summer internships as part of the Louis Stokes Scholars Program.
Miricle is a 2019 graduate of Cleveland Early College High School, where she was a three-year member of the school’s mock trial team coached by Tucker Ellis attorneys. She led her team to the 2019 Cleveland Mock Trial Championship, where she won a Best Attorney award. This fall, Miricle will attend Miami (Ohio) University.
Abigail is a 2019 graduate of Cleveland School of the Arts. She has been active in the Cleveland Public Theatre’s STEP Program, where she studied acting and the technical side of theatrical production. Abigail will attend Xavier University this fall.
Miracle and Abigail were mentored at Tucker Ellis by attorneys Brandon Cox and Ludgy LaRochelle, as well as paralegal Cherie Bunevich.
The Louis Stokes Scholars Program, named after Ohio’s first African-American Congressman Louis Stokes, is an award-winning CMBA diversity and inclusion pipeline initiative begun in 2012 by Carter Strang during his 2012-2013 term as CMBA president. Louis Stokes Scholars are college students who graduated from the Cleveland or East Cleveland Municipal School District and are interested in becoming attorneys. The Scholars are placed in local law firms, courts, and legal nonprofits for the summer. On July 17, Tucker Ellis hosted a “Lunch & Learn” for all of the 2019 CMBA Louis Stokes Scholars, which provided insights into the practice of law and how to best prepare for law school admission and completion.
