Samantha Rayburn-Moore (LL.M. '10) was honored with a Bill Duffy Memorial Scholarship from the New York state chapter of the Tax Executive Institute. She is one of only two students to receive the scholarship this year, which was presented at the Tax Executive Institutes annual tax symposium luncheon on December 10, 2009.

Rayburn-Moore, who holds a bachelor’s degree in accountancy, a master’s in taxation, and a law degree from the University of Mississippi, was nominated for the scholarship by Professor Leo Schmolka. “The Bill Duffy Memorial Scholarship is meant to recognize the tax talent of tomorrow,” says Schmolka. “In my estimation, Samantha surely deserves that recognition.”
