Bailey embodies precisely what we were looking for when we offered this scholarship. We have no doubt that Bailey will continue to make the world a better place in the years to come.
Shelbyville, IN (PRWEB) July 31, 2016
McNeely Stephenson, an Indiana law firm with offices in Shelbyville, New Albany and Indianapolis, has announced the recipient of their Community Involvement Scholarship for 2016. Bailey C. Culp of Shelbyville will receive the $1000 award, which was offered by the firm to encourage and reward the dedication of an exemplary individual who is deeply involved in their community.
“Bailey embodies precisely what we were looking for when we offered this scholarship,” said Mike Stephenson, attorney with McNeely Stephenson. “His work with special needs children, along with his missionary work, is very impressive, and we have no doubt that Bailey will continue to make the world a better place in the years to come.”
The firm said that Culp’s list of achievements, in addition to the several letters of recommendations submitted on his behalf, made him an obvious choice for the scholarship.
Culp has been involved in a number of volunteer activities, including serving as a guidance counselor for children with muscular dystrophy and attending mission trips to Washington, D.C., and northeast Brazil. He was selected for the scholarship, in part, based on an essay he submitted to McNeely Stephenson.
Culp will use the funding provided by the scholarship to attend Ball State University, where he hopes to be involved in the Student Voluntary Services program, an organization that promotes community service. Culp said in his essay that he plans to continue to be involved in special needs education, particularly with elementary school students.
The scholarship earned by Bailey Culp is one of two being offered by McNeely Stephenson this year. The other award is a scholarship geared toward students who will be pursuing a career in the legal profession. The firm said it is proud to be able to assist exceptional young people who are pursuing their goals to become the next generation of leaders and philanthropists.
For students interested in more scholarship opportunities from McNeely Stephenson, the firm will be announcing more awards this fall.
