Each year, the Black Law Students Association (BLSA) hosts this memorial banquet to promote the Alden J. "Butch" Carpenter Memorial Scholarship Fund and to refelct upon the principles that Butch personified. As a part of the annual banquet, the Fund awards scholarships to outstanding first-year BLSA members who have demonstrated commitment to combining business and law to promote community development. Last year, in 2018, the Fund awarded a total of $60,000 in scholarships to three deserving students.
