Ethan Jeffus accepted into Loyola’s Ignatian Law Scholars Program

by Amber McDown

Ethan Jeffus, a well-known figure in the Minden community for his extensive volunteer work, has been accepted into the prestigious Ignatian Law Scholars (ILS) Program at Loyola University. Jeffus has a long history of service, including roles as a committee member and social media manager for the Nursing Home Olympics of Northwest Louisiana and international director for Junior Civitans International. His most recent initiative, Little Free Pantry Louisiana, aims to combat food insecurity.

The ILS Program at Loyola University recognizes promising law students whose applications reflect Jesuit values of academic excellence and service. Scholars receive a renewable Dean’s Scholarship and are paired with faculty and alumni mentors. They also participate in special events each semester to build connections within the law school community.

Over the past few months, Jeffus has been touring various law schools. He was accepted to LSU, Tulane, and Baylor as well as some out-of-state schools, but chose to accept an offer from Loyola Law School starting this August. Jeffus was awarded the Ignatian Law Scholars Award, which includes a full tuition scholarship. This award, the highest honor offered by Loyola Law, is given to fewer than 20 admitted students each year.

“I feel that in attending Loyola Law as an Ignatian Law Scholar I will be granted a unique learning opportunity that will not only challenge me but connect me with like-minded individuals further igniting my passion for the law and service to others,” said Jeffus. “In pursuing a legal education here in my home state of Louisiana, I am granted the opportunity to continue my ongoing service efforts across the state, which is something I am greatly passionate about.”

In addition to his law school preparations, Jeffus will intern for the Republican National Committee in June. He will assist in the preparations for the Republican National Convention in July, gaining valuable experience on the committee on arrangements.

Jeffus’s acceptance into the Ignatian Law Scholars Program highlights his dedication to academic excellence and community service, continuing his commitment to making a positive impact.
