Scott Sternberg, third-year student at the LSU Paul M. Hebert Law Center, was recently elected to be the new student member of the LSU Board of Supervisors. Sternberg was picked for the one-year position at a meeting of LSU student government leaders in Baton Rouge. He will be sworn in at the board’s June 4 meeting in Baton Rouge.
“After going to LSU A&M and now being at LSU Law, I am really honored to represent the 50,000 plus students of the LSU System in this important year,” said Sternberg.
“I am particularly honored given the tough issues we face this year, such as the budget problems. Students deserve to have an advocate on the Board, and that’s what I’m going to do.”
The 25-year-old Sternberg is a 2006 graduate of the LSU Manship School of Communication and a former editor of the LSU Daily Reveille. Following graduation, he moved to Washington, D.C. to work for the nonprofit Student Press Law Center. He also worked as a freelance reporter for The Washington Post, The Times-Picayune, and the Baton Rouge Business Report.
He is incoming executive president of the LSU Law Student Bar Association, a senior associate of the Louisiana Law Review, member of the Chancellor’s Student Advisory Board, and a writer for the Civilian, the Law Center’s student newsletter. Sternberg is also very active with the Law Center’s Public Interest Law Society (PILS).
