CUA Law Students Present Check to SEC Historical Society

  

The Securities Law Students Association at the Columbus School of Law presented a check for $350 to the SEC Historical Society on April 14, 2010, helping to fund the organization’s new virtual museum section on Film, Radio and Television.  

The historical society's virtual museum and archive is an open door to the history of the regulation of the capital market system from the 20th century to the present. Its collection is built and exhibited independent of any oversight from the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
 
Earlier this year, the law school’s Student Bar Association enacted a community service initiative, asking each student organization to complete an approved community service project during the school year.
 
The SLSA’s approved project was a fundraiser that would benefit the SEC Historical Society and the V Foundation for Cancer Research, established 17 years ago in honor of the late Jim Valvano, former head coach of the men’s basketball program at North Carolina State.
 
“Our fundraiser was one of the more successful, raising $350 for the Society and $150 for the V Foundation,” said Trevor Harley (3L), one of the three student leaders of the SLSA. The funds were raised through the sale of tickets to students during the recently completed NCAA national basketball tournament.
 

The SEC Historical Society’s Film, Radio and Television section offers web visitors historical documentaries, clips of old speeches and newsreels related to securities regulation. The check presented on April 14 will permit at least five of the exhibits to note that they were “made possible through the support of the Securities Law Student Association, Columbus School of Law, The Catholic University of America.”
