Salt Creek Energy Excellence Scholarship recipient Casey Terrell has accepted an offer to join the nationally recognized energy practice at Crowley Fleck PLLP as an associate in the firm’s Sheridan, Wyoming office.
Terrell, of Pinedale, Wyoming, is the second Salt Creek Scholar at the University of Wyoming College of Law. The scholarship both financially awards law students as they pursue an education in energy and natural resources law and connects students to a network of friends and donors to provide employment and mentorship opportunities.
“The Salt Creek Energy Excellence Scholarship and its network of outstanding donors has been invaluable in helping me to break into the practice of energy law,” said Terrell. “I could not have asked for a better opportunity, and I am extremely grateful for the encouragement and support of the network.”
Poe Leggette, the managing partner of BakerHostetler’s Denver office and co-leader of the firm’s national energy team, co-founded the Salt Creek Energy Excellence Scholarship. He said, “We are proud to help outstanding young scholars complete their legal education and enter the field of energy law. Casey Terrell will be a great asset to Crowley Fleck and the legal profession.”
In addition to nearing completion of his law degree, Terrell is concurrently earning a master’s degree in environment and natural resources though the dual-degree program offered by the College of Law and the Haub School.
Jim Mowry, hiring partner for Crowley Fleck’s Sheridan, Wyoming office, praised Casey’s bright future: “Casey has proven an outstanding law student and we are excited to have him join our energy and natural resource practice group. He will be an excellent attorney and advocate for the energy industry.”
The Salt Creek Energy Excellence Scholarship was founded to encourage students who demonstrate a strong interest in energy law. It is named for the oldest producing oil and gas field in Wyoming, which has been crucial to the livelihoods of many generations of families in the area.
Salt Creek Scholars will be acknowledged at the annual scholarship dinner, honored at the annual Landscape Discussion on Energy Law and Policy, and promoted to potential employers through the Salt Creek donor network.
