MARLTON, NJ (PRWEB) August 15, 2016
The law firm of Console & Hollawell is pleased to award scholarships to two deserving future legal leaders for the 2016-2017 school year. The winner of the 2016 Console & Hollawell Legal Scholarship is Megan Foertsch of Farmingdale, NY. The winner of the 2016 My Injury Attorney Legal Scholarship is Cindy Lam of Elk Grove, CA.
Foertsch, 20, earned her Associate’s Degree in American Sign Language from Suffolk County Community College in May 2016. She then enrolled in Farmingdale State College’s Criminal Justice Law Enforcement Program, from which she expects to graduate with her bachelor’s degree in 2018. Foertsch, who has been passionate about the legal industry since high school and already works in an attorney’s office, then plans to start law school. She used her scholarship essay to weigh in on a controversial criminal case that took place close to her home, in which a young driver faced serious charges in the aftermath of a tragic car crash.
Lam, 18, graduated from Franklin High School in 2016 and is eager to begin her political science studies at the University of California—Santa Barbara this fall. She is very involved in her community and has earned the Presidential Volunteer Service Award and the Mayor’s Youth Volunteer Award for her service efforts. As a longtime advocate of environmental sustainability, Lam’s goal is to use her legal education to become a lawmaker so she can create laws that support environmentally sustainable practices.
