Foreman gift supports law scholarships


Carol Foreman

Carol Foreman wasn't clear about her career path when she graduated with her undergraduate degree from the University of Kansas. She knew she wanted to find a career that would give her the ability to support herself and make a difference in the lives of others.

She found that career path while attending the Washburn School of Law, where she graduated in 1980.

"I found my law school experience to be rewarding and challenging," she said. "The reward came from being both challenged and supported by professors and fellow students."

While she has supported the law school for many years, she recently made a planned gift to support scholarships for law students.

"I came from modest means, and since law school positively changed my life, I wanted to provide the same opportunity to others who might need some assistance to attend law school," she said.

Foreman began her distinguished career with the state of Kansas as a hearing officer and within two years received a promotion to chief administrative law judge. She served in that capacity for 15 years before becoming the first director of the Kansas Office of Administrative Hearings. She is recognized for her expertise in administrative law and currently chairs the Kansas Judicial Council's Administrative Procedures Advisory Committee.

In 2003, Governor Kathleen Sebelius appointed Foreman deputy secretary of the Kansas Department of Administration, which involved leading and managing a workforce of 500 employees responsible for state government operations. Carol retired from that position in 2010 and is now with the law firm of Glenn, Cornish and Hanson.

"Working for state government gave me the opportunity to make a difference to impact people's lives," she said. "Without law school I would not have had that opportunity."
