The Akins Legal Eagles (Law Interns) get recognized by the Texas Legislature

The Legal Eagles returned from the Texas State Capitol on Tuesday, February 26th after being recognized as the first high school legal aid clinic in the country. Representative Donna Howard honored the Akins organization greatly by passing a resolution. Representative Walle (from Houston), was also kind enough to say a few words during the reading of the resolution and to the students after the resolution was passed. The students are all introduced by name around 1:29:45. The Legal Eagles also ran into Jason Briggs, a former Akins Eagle from the class of 2006! He is now Chief of Staff for Representative Murphy. He sends his regards to all of his former teachers, Coach Garza, Ally Gates, and Stephanie Matthews. Hopefully the Capitol will be full of Akins Eagles in the future!
