Dear Dr. Cheema,

I’m pleased to tell you that we have awarded the first Momina Cheema Memorial Scholarship to Humza Salim.  Mr. Salim graduated summa cum laude from Arizona State University with a bachelor’s degree in political science in 2013.  Between then and his matriculation at the Law School this fall, he worked as a volunteer at the First Islamic Trust of Arizona, a nonprofit that funds religious activities.

I’m sure Mr. Salim will be in touch to thank you personally.  Thank you again for your generosity to UVA Law.

With best regards,

Paul Mahoney
