The Law Office of Stanley A. Davis is proud to announce that we have selected three Tennessee students to receive our Pay It Forward Scholarship this year. We take pride in supporting our local community; accordingly, this scholarship was offered to undergraduate students who could demonstrate their commitment to helping the less fortunate, promoting equality and serving their communities.
The three students appeared in person at our Nashville law office, where founder Stanley Davis presented each with a check. This scholarship will help our winners pay for their college education; all three winners are attending Tennessee universities. Originally, this scholarship was offered to just one student, but it proved impossible to choose between our top three applications.
About the Recipients of the Pay It Forward Scholarship
Each of our three scholarship recipients wrote an essay detailing how our nation’s legal system helped or hindered them in their efforts to serve their community. Additionally, our winners recorded a short video explaining the main points of their essays. We are pleased to announce that the three winners of the 2018 Pay It Forward Scholarship from the Law Office of Stanley A. Davis are:
