At the law firm of Flora Templeton Stuart, we believe that the greatest leaders in our country give back to their communities to selflessly serve others and make a difference in the eradication of racism and economic inequality. Great leaders come from all backgrounds and we want to recognize local students who demonstrate these values through dedicated volunteer work, service, and career plans. Right now, it is more important than ever to break through racial and ethnic barriers and highlight the voices that often go unheard.
To help empower our unsung local leaders, our firm is proud to announce the “Breonna Taylor” Scholarship in honor of Ms. Taylor. Through this contest, we aim to provide financial assistance to under-served or underprivileged ethnic minority students whose leadership, empathy, and passion have and will positively change the lives of people in their communities and the world.
Students need to submit an essay between 500-1000 words about how they have made a difference in the lives of others with their passion to change the world. We also want to know about career aspirations and how their career path will enable them to give back to the community and be a voice for the underprivileged. Finally, students should explain how their life experiences have given them empathy and understanding for others victimized by racial and economic inequality. The scholarship winner will be awarded $1,000.
