Aaron Cromer, from Oklahoma City, is in his third year at University of Houston Law Center. He grew up near the oil fields, the son of hardworking parents who “imbued in me their tough work ethic in order to get where I’m going,” Cromer said.
At Oklahoma State University, he studied sustainability management courses to understand the future interactions modern corporations have with respect to people, planet, and profit and energy finance classes to understand financing these types of projects.
“I believe that our world is going to face an energy crisis in the next several decades, and the backgrounds I accumulate in tech, financing, mergers and acquisitions, and the law will help us figure out how to keep the world running,” Cromer said. “As evidenced by my community involvement, I am a relentless volunteer. Whether in the Mayor of Oklahoma City’s Young Professional Council or through organizations like Rotary International, I was able to bring in potential clients to my firm.”
Todd Donavan, Associate Professor of Marketing at Colorado State University, is a member of the same fraternity at OSU.
“During my twenty-eight years of volunteering for this chapter, I gained substantial experience working with volunteers and young men. Aaron is one of the most outstanding members/volunteers I have had the pleasure of working with,” Donavan said. “Aaron has spoken extensively with me about working in the petroleum legal field. Aaron’s experience demonstrates his passion for the career.”
Anya Bolshakov coached Aaron for the South Texas College of Law’s 7th Annual Energy Law Negotiation Competition.
“Aaron is academically motivated, as shown by his rank and GPA,” Bolshakov said. “As a first-generation law student, myself, I was delighted to know that Aaron has serves as a mentor to 1L students at the University of Houston Law Center. He is truly a leader on and off the Law Center’s campus.”
