Average Student Scholarship

Average Student Scholarship

In life, in school and in a career, we are lucky to have encouragers – people who push us forward, so we keep learning and growing. This scholarship was made graciously possible by Robert Wampler, a double graduate of the University of Memphis who wants to help UofM students shine. He graduated in 1972 from law school and in 1969 with a BBA in Business Management. Currently a partner at Wampler and Pierce, P.C., he has built a successful practice focused on domestic relations and contract litigation.
The phrase “I know that I know nothing” or “I know one thing: that I know nothing”, sometimes called the Socratic paradox, is a well-known saying that is derived from Plato’s account of the Greek philosopher Socrates. In essence, it means that we can never really stop learning – there is always something out there that will open our eyes in new and different ways. What a joy it is to keep discovering. This philosophy inspired Robert Wampler to create this scholarship.
