"I credit the rigorous academics at Covenant College for preparing me for law school and my career, and I'm incredibly thankful for the many professors and friends who encouraged me along the way."
Kat's Story: Ambitions Discovered
In 2016, Kathryn Kimball '09 was selected for the SCOTUS clerkship to serve with Justice Clarence Thomas for the 2018 term. After graduating with highest honors from Covenant in 2009 with a degree in Economics, Kimball went on to receive her JD from the Fredric G. Levin College of Law in 2012, where she graduated first in her class. While at Covenant, Kimball was in the Maclellan Scholars Program
program, which equips students for faithful leadership and encourages them to live out their callings for the good of the church and the world. During her senior year at Covenant, she also served as student body president.
"Kathryn always approached her studies with faithfulness, diligence, and poise and it's no surprise to hear that she has carried these characteristics into her career," said Sarah Huffines, associate professor of English and co-director of the Maclellan Scholars Program. "I'm obviously thrilled for her success, and I am confident that those around her will benefit from her presence."
During her clerkship, Kimball was deeply involved in the daily work of the Supreme Court, researching issues presented in petitions, writing memoranda about pending cases, and assisting Justice Thomas as he prepared for oral arguments.
