Propelled by equity
Scholarship recipient Andy Vanden Busch plans a career in education policy
A recipient of the Lahart-Leach Scholarship, law student Andy Vanden Busch is propelled by his goal of equity. Prior to becoming a high school social studies teacher, he worked as a sign language interpreter. “I found myself most at home in the classroom,” Vanden Busch says. “I learned that we have a long way to go in providing fair and equitable experiences for all students of all learning styles.”
A first-generation law student, Vanden Busch enrolled in Loyola’s Weekend JD program, whose flexibility allows students to work as they earn their degrees. After graduation, he says he plans to “work in education policy that would further improve learning conditions for every kid in the classroom.”
At Loyola Law, we’re proud to offer a top-notch legal education with our unique Jesuit values at the core, and we want that experience to be accessible to every student hoping to embark on their academic journey with us. With more than 90% of our student body receiving aid of some kind, scholarship support is often the difference that allows a student to make their dream a reality.
