David Hortin Scholarship in Public Law

During his career, David Hortin worked tirelessly to educate and challenge young minds inside and outside of the classroom through his role as a professor and adviser to the PreLaw Society. Hortin's service includes several highlights:

  • Nearly 40 years on the faculty of EMU
  • Senior Distinguished Faculty Teaching Award
  • Alumni Association Teaching Excellence Award (two-time winner)
  • Posthumous distinction as emeritus professor, on the unanimous recommendation of the Department of Political Science

To honor David's achievements and allow him to continue to positively affect students even after his death, we have established the David Hortin Public law Student Fund at EMU. This endowment will provide scholarships for students of public law and also will benefit public law-related activities such as the Mock Trial Program.
