TULSA, Okla. –Damario Solomon-Simmons, Booker T. Washington graduate, is giving back to the Tulsa community by challenging minority youth to excel by considering the legal profession. Pipeline Plus Legal Diversity Program, sponsored by Williams Company, WPX Energy, Inc. and Northeast Oklahoma Black Lawyers Association, will provide Tulsa public high school students with the opportunity to explore legal professions through first-hand experiences on October. 11th.
Last spring, Solomon-Simmons began visiting multiple Tulsa public schools to teach students about legal professions that are available as a career. Selected students from these schools will now be given the opportunity to learn even more about the potential for a career in the legal field.
The program being held on October 11th will provide the students with a chance to talk to people similar to themselves who have accomplished their goals. They will also have interactive experience in an actual courtroom with the chief judge, Gregory Frizzell, at the Tulsa Federal Courthouse, followed by a lunch and presentation at the Tulsa Convention Center. The new US Attorney is the keynote speaker, in addition to a panel of law professionals and students.
The goal of this program is to encourage inner-city youth to strive for excellence in education and look for opportunities to succeed in careers in the legal field.
