2014 marks the second year in which Keller & Keller has partnered with the Univeristy of New Mexico (UNM) School of Law to provide scholarship funds to UNM law students. Once again, our firm made a combined total of $10,000 available to three, first-year UNM law students who expressed a strong desire to continue furthering their legal education.
Join us in congratulating the following winners of the 2014 Keller & Keller Law School Challenge!
Bryan Rowland — $5,000
Bryan Rowland graduated from the University of New Mexico in 2006 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and a minor in Economics. His professional background since graduation has been in the medical industry as a sales manager, a contracts and pricing analyst supervisor, and a pharmaceutical sales rep.

Mr. Rowland plans to use his legal education within Natural Resources, Native American Law, Water, and Tort law to help bring wider access to needed services to underserved populations in New Mexico.
Together with his wife of 16 years, Bryan has three children ranging in ages from 8, 13, and 16 years old. An avid sports fan, Bryan spends most of his free time coaching various youth football teams that his sons play for and driving their children across the city too sporting events and practices.
