Kelley, Bruce D. Endowed Scholarship
The Bruce D. Kelley Endowed Scholarship was established in memory of Bruce David Kelley, beloved son of Carolyn Kelley and David Kelley and brother of Lori Kelley. Bruce Kelley was a very special and loving son, brother, and friend. He will always be remembered for the love he had for his family, his caring enthusiasm for his friends, and his dedication to the promotion of justice, the protection of individual liberty, and the rule of law. Bruce was a dedicated sports fan who loved traveling and the outdoors. He was handsome, intelligent, fun to be with, sensitive, kind, thoughtful, well-read, and very giving.
A 1992 magna cum laude graduate of The University of Akron School of Law, Bruce became the third generation in his family to become a lawyer. Bruce’s academic achievements are of note as he worked full time as a locksmith while attending law school at night. Professionally, Bruce was employed as an assistant law director for the city of Akron, Ohio. He was also a member of the Akron Bar Association. Bruce’s respect and passion for the law were an important part of his life. He even named his beloved dog, Justitia.
As a living legacy in remembrance of Bruce’s life, The Bruce D. Kelley Endowed Scholarship has been established to provide an annual academic scholarship based on merit and demonstrated financial need. This scholarship will be awarded to a law student employed full time and attending evening classes at The University of Akron School of Law.
