An evening with admitted students of the South Texas College of Law Houston’s incoming class was held on Thursday, March 27 at the historic downtown Houston office of Abraham Watkins.
(Houston, TX) A new student reception for the South Texas College of Law Houston was recently hosted by the Houston law firm of Abraham, Watkins, Nichols, Agosto, Aziz & Stogner. The networking and welcome event brought together newly admitted students and alumni of the South Texas College of Law Houston, including several attorneys from Abraham Watkins.
Firm Partner Benny Agosto, Jr. (’95) and firm attorney Brant Stogner (’06) have established thriving law practices after completing their legal education at the South Texas College of Law Houston and continue to remain active with their law school alma mater.
Benny Agosto, Jr. was named to the inaugural South Texas College of Law Houston 1923 Society, based in part on their financial contributions to the law school. A donation from Mr. Agosto helped make the Benny and Nikki Agosto Children’s Waiting Room in the school’s legal clinics possible.
The entire legal team at Abraham Watkins proudly supports the South Texas College of Law Houston, through mentoring relationships with current and prospective law students, scholarships, and mock trial events. Mr. Agosto established the Bernardino and Marina Agosto Scholarships, given annually to Hispanic graduates of the South Texas College of Law Houston, and delivered the commencement address to the December 2013 graduating class. Mr. Agosto and Mr. Stogner have each served on the South Texas College of Law Houston Alumni Association Board of Directors. Mr. Stogner is a founding member of the South Texas College of Law Houston Young Alumni Council and serves as an Adjunct Advocacy Professor.
