We are able to sleep safely at night because of our brave war heroes who have defended our country. To those who were or are currently in the military, we cannot thank you enough for your service. Your dedication and determination to this country are commendable and truly appreciated.
Additionally, we want to recognize the devotion of their families. The support and commitment you continuously give to encourage your loved ones should never go unnoticed. That’s why Orent Law Offices has created a $2,000 scholarship opportunity for military children. Phoenix criminal lawyer Craig Orent’s goal is to assist those families who have so graciously given back to the community.
We are excited to announce the winner of our 2016 Military Scholarship contest. The recipient of this award is Amber Sheffer, a graduate of the University of Illinois at Chicago and she will be awarded $2,000 for her submission.
The prompt of the scholarship essay was to explain “How has your parent’s service shaped your life growing up and how does it affects future goals and dreams?” Our team at Orent Law wanted to create a scholarship that would highlight and appreciate all of those who have selflessly served our country. The goal of this scholarship is to assist those families who have risked their lives to give back to their community.
We would like to thank everyone who submitted an essay sharing personal stories of how the military has shaped their life. We truly appreciate the service from each family and we admire the strength and support each applicant has had throughout their lives with family members in the military.
