Marlton, NJ (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Caitlin Vindelle Pomerance of Miami, Florida, has won the first Console & Hollawell Legal Leaders Scholarship. Each year, the $1,000 award will assist one aspiring legal professional in pursuing an education in pre-law, paralegal studies, or law school. Pomerance is preparing to begin her third year of law school at the University of Florida Levin College of Law, where she is pursuing an Environmental and Land Use Law Certificate as well as her juris doctorate. Her hard-earned 3.62 GPA demonstrates her outstanding academic achievement.
Pomerance, a marine life enthusiast since childhood, intends to focus her legal career on water law and policy. Already, she has made a difference in protecting the water quality in Costa Rica by recommending ways to minimize runoff from fertilizer and pesticides while studying abroad there. She also collaborated with the South Florida Water Management District and Water Resources Advisory Counsel to suggest procedures for conserving water. Pomerance’s work on a report for the Ocean Crest Alliance has helped fuel efforts to create a Marine Protected Area in the Bahamas. The ongoing initiative will include Pomerance’s attendance at a stakeholder meeting in November.
