South Texas College of Law Houston Recognizes Lindsey Moorhead With Young Alumni Award


In honor of her continued commitment to her law school alma mater, Lindsey C. Moorhead was presented with the South Texas College of Law Houston’s Young Alumni Award on October 25, 2019. Introduced in 2016, the Young Alumni Award is presented to an alumnus who has graduated in the past 10 years and has made notable leadership and service contributions to the college and the legal profession.

Lindsey Moorhead received the 2019 Young Alumni Award at the South Texas College of Law Houston Alumni Association’s
Annual Meeting and Luncheon held on October 25, 2019, at the Marriott Marquis Houston.

Prior to graduating cum laude from STCL Houston, Lindsey served as the Editor-in-Chief of the South Texas Law Review from 2010-2011 and was named the most outstanding graduate in 2011. Since graduating, Lindsey has maintained an active presence at the college with roles on both the Alumni Association’s Board of Directors and the Young Alumni Council. In addition, she chairs the 100% Law Firm Challenge, which encourages law firms and businesses to achieve 100% giving participation among STCL Houston alumni. With Lindsey at the helm, Jackson Walker has accomplished that goal for the past eight years.

On receiving the 2019 Young Alumni Award, Lindsey said: “I am delighted to have been honored by the school I love so much, especially since I was able to experience this moment with my family and friends.”

A partner in the environmental section of Jackson Walker, Lindsey represents clients participating in site cleanup and remediation projects. Since 2017, she has been named an “Associate to Watch in Environment – Texas” in Chambers and Partners’ Chambers USA Guide. Outside of her practice, Lindsey is also involved in the American, Houston Bar, and Houston Bar Auxiliary Associations, the Houston Young Lawyers Association, the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, and the Leadership Council on Legal Diversity’s Pathfinder Program. In 2018, she was elected as a Fellow of the Texas Bar Foundation.

Established in 1923, South Texas College of Law Houston is the oldest law school in Houston and the third-oldest in Texas. Held during Alumni Weekend, the Alumni Association Annual Meeting and Luncheon is the biggest alumni event of the year and features an awards ceremony to honor three individuals with the Distinguished Alumni Award, Public Service Award, and Young Alumni Award.

In the history of the Young Alumni Award, only three others have been presented—one of which went to Jackson Walker partner Courtney T. Carlson in 2017.
