Through its recently launched award program, Alexander Shunnarah Gulf Coast, LLP proudly celebrates students who demonstrate a blend of high school athletic accomplishment and academic excellence in the Mobile area. Each week, the personal injury law firm presents a local classroom and athletic star with $250 from its Scholastic Athlete of the Week program.
"We are proud to support these young academic and athletic stars," said James T. Laura, managing partner for all Alexander Shunnarah Gulf Coast, LLP offices in Florida, Alabama, Mississippi and Georgia. "The blend of academic excellence with the competition and discipline of athletics is a great predictor of future success, so we'd like to recognize the efforts of these local scholars and athletes."
Recent winners of the award include a sophomore athlete with a 4.35 GPA at Mattie T. Blount High School, as well as a senior member of the McGill-Toolen Catholic High School football team with a 3.55 GPA.
