Frederic L. Ballard, Jr. Memorial Scholarship
NABL renamed its existing Fundamentals of Municipal Bond Law Seminar scholarship program to honor longtime NABL member Frederic L. “Rick” Ballard, Jr. who passed away in 2014. NABL’s decision to bestow this honor on Mr. Ballard stemmed from his longstanding commitment to educating young bond attorneys. As Mr. Ballard’s contributions to NABL touched so many of its members, NABL is confident that the Frederic L. Ballard, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Program will become part of his enduring legacy.
In recognition of the newly named program, the law firm of Ballard Spahr LLP made a generous donation in his memory to the Scholarship fund. NABL invites all of its members to support the continued funding of the Frederic L. Ballard, Jr. Memorial Scholarship Program. Contributions should be made to NABL’s affiliated 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation, the Robert H. Hilderbrand, Jr. Fund, which will oversee and administer the scholarships. Those interested in contributing to the scholarship fund can download this form and submit it along with the donation to Linda Wyman, NABL’s Chief Operating Officer. Donations to the fund are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.
