Loss of a dedicated NNLSO member
We are sad to report that Sharon Nellums-Goosby, long-time NNLSO member, passed away on July 11, 2017. Sharon was the Academic Records Coordinator at the University of Houston Law Center for 18 years. Sharon no doubt helped countless law students through the years.  A memoriam to Sharon by the University of Houston Law Center can be found by clicking here.
Looking forward to an exciting annual meeting with you all!
