Mike Morris Helps Announce New Scholarship Opportunity for Rose-Hulman Graduates Seeking a Law Degree

March 26, 2014

Associate Mike Morris helped announce a new scholarship opportunity for engineering students interested in pursuing careers in intellectual property. The new scholarship is available to Rose-Hulman graduates admitted to the Indiana University Maurer School of Law and will reduce the cost of law school tuition over three years by approximately $45,000 to $75,000, depending on the student’s residency and other factors. Mike, a Rose-Hulman and Maurer alumnus, remains active in both organizations by, among other things, meeting with engineering students interested in pursuing a career in law and serving as a coach for the Maurer School of Law’s intellectual property moot court teams. More information on the scholarship can be found here.


Continued Success for Firm Sponsored FIRST Robotics Crossroads Regional at Rose-Hulman

March 13, 2014

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology hosted the FIRST Robotics Crossroads Regional for the second time March 6th-8th. Woodard, Emhardt, Moriarty, McNett and Henry LLP, a proud sponsor of this event since its inception, congratulates the winning teams and applauds all the students for their ingenuity and hard work. Bill McKenna, a partner at the firm, helped judge the three-day competition.

The FIRST® Robotics Competition (FRC) is a union of sport and mind, introducing high school aged innovators to real-world robotics challenges while promoting the value of education in STEM fields. FRC teams comprised of high school students and a handful of engineer-mentors design and build the robots in six weeks from a common set of parts, with the hopes of winning at various regional competitions.

This year’s Crossroads Regional included robots designed and constructed by teams from 45 high schools from nine states across the Midwest. The team’s robots were designed to play Aerial Assist, a game which requires that the robots cooperate in moving color coded exercise balls across a 25 by 54 foot playing field and into ground level and elevated scoring goals. The teams competed against one another in front of a crowd of more than 2,200 people.

Also attending this year’s event was Eighth District U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon (R-Indiana), who visited with teams, observed the competition, and spoke at the FIRST® Robotics supporter’s luncheon.

Huge Success for Firm Sponsored FIRST Robotics Crossroads Regional

April 8, 2013

In this year’s FIRST Robotics Crossroads Regional, robots designed and constructed by students of 50 high schools across seven Midwest states competed against one another in front of a crowd of more than 2,200 people. Armed with robots designed to shoot discs into goal slots at the ends of a 54 foot playing field, both autonomously and under human control, teams from Carmel, Connersville, Indianapolis, and Lafayette, Indiana qualified to compete at the national level and at the FIRST Robotics World Championships.

Woodard, Emhardt, Moriarty, McNett, and Henry LLP, a proud sponsor of this year’s event, congratulates the winning teams and applauds all the students for their ingenuity and hard work. William McKenna, a partner at the firm, helped judge the three-day competition held April 4th -6th at Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology in Terre Haute, Indiana. This competition, and the success of all the teams from Indiana, shows the positive impact from the State’s and industries’ efforts to improve interest and education in math and science.
