LINCOLN - Haley Huson, a 2011 Sidney High School graduate, was honored with an award recognizing her contributions to the Nebraska State Bar Association's Tenant Assistance Project.
The advocate award recognizes Nebraska law students each semester who exceed expectations in their effort to support the program and contribute to its success. Huson was one of two students to receive the honor. Allan Dugger received the other award.
According to a press release, Huson worked as a research assistant and provided support in tracking past and on-going eviction cases for Professor Ryan Sullivan. Her tasks included the creation of over 200 eviction defense packets, which are critical to TAP volunteers and attorneys.
The CDC moratorium during the COVID-19 pandemic, which was extended twice during her tenure, resulted in an influx of continued cases. Huson was tasked with tracking and prepping those cases.
She is set to graduate from the Nebraska College of Law in Lincoln in 2022.
