Shrader and Associates, L.L.P., a Houston area leader in mesothelioma litigation, has announced the winner of its 2015 Scholarship Contest. Roman Chavez from Columbia Basin College has been named this year's recipient of the $1,000 award.

Earlier this year, Shrader and Associates, L.L.P, generated a scholarship to create awareness about the dangers of asbestos among college students. The original requirements were for students interested in learning about asbestos to submit a document of 500-1,000 words answering questions about the history of asbestos in the U.S., how asbestos is linked to mesothelioma, and what actions have been taken in response to this connection.

Two-year, 4-year and graduate level students were eligible to participate in the scholarship contest. The official winner announcement will be posted to the blog.

Shrader and Associates, L.L.P., selected Roman Chavez, a General Science major from Columbia Basin College, to receive the award.

"Roman went above and beyond our requirements to earn the scholarship," Shrader & Associates representatives said. "He responded to all three questions in depth and even took things to the next level by including detailed information from an interview he conducted with a Certified Industrial Hygienist who has experience working in asbestos-affected areas."

Chavez's thorough research, a well-presented discussion of the topic, and his proactive approach in exceeding the judges' expectations secured him the $1,000 scholarship among hundreds of contestants.

"Roman took the initiative to produce accurate and relevant information," Shrader & Associates representatives said. "We appreciate his efforts and congratulate him on submitting the winning entry. He has set the bar high for the next round of applicants for the 2016 Scholarship Contest."

The goal of the scholarship contest was to create awareness of mesothelioma and asbestos-related illness at the collegiate level in an effort to aid future generations in the prevention and battle against this often deadly disease.
