Hite Fanning & Honeyman LLP Scholarship

LAWRENCE — A Wichita law firm with strong Jayhawk ties recently exceeded $80,000 in lifetime giving to KU Law. 

Hite, Fanning & Honeyman has contributed to KU Law scholarships with consistent annual gifts since its inception. The firm now supports the Hite, Fanning & Honeyman LLP Scholarship, which is awarded to students based on merit and need.  

“The practice of law is professionally and financially rewarding, and the firm believes it is incumbent upon the profession to share the good fortune with our communities,” said Brad LaForge, L’01, a partner at the firm. “KU Law is not only a vital part of our community, but it has also been a major factor in many of our lives. We enjoy the opportunity to assist law students in a journey that will enrich them and, in turn, their own communities.”

A third of Hite Fanning’s attorneys are KU Law alumni, ranging from partners who have practiced with the firm for more than 30 years to 2015 graduate Bill Walberg, who joined the firm as an associate last summer.
