Six North Carolina students are one step closer to realizing their dream of earning a four-year college degree. Each year, CR Legal Team awards its $2,500 Founder's Scholarship to graduating high school seniors who will attend an accredited four-year college or university. The 2014 recipients are Kelsey Eaves of Charlotte, N.C., Mackenzie Matthews of Pinnacle, N.C. and Christian Wheeler of Mooresville, N.C.
In addition, CR Legal Team awarded its $2,500 Next Step Scholarship to three community college students planning to transfer to an accredited four-year college or university. The recipients are Becky Anderson of Henderson, N.C., Ryan Norwood of Norlina, N.C. and Morgan Sox of Apex, N.C.
The named students were selected from more than 350 applicants based on their essay or creative writing responses to the issue of distracted driving, particularly in young drivers, plaguing our nation. To select the scholarship recipients, essays were judged by an independent and diverse panel of accomplished professionals and community leaders.
"Our scholarship programs are an investment in the future," said Chris Roberts, President and CEO of CR Legal Team . "An investment not only in the lives of the recipients, but also in our communities. We believe these students are the leaders of tomorrow and we are proud to encourage their continued growth and success."
CR Legal Team is committed to helping students follow their educational goals through its scholarship programs. To date, the firm has awarded nearly $190,000 in scholarships and technology to college-bound students.Free Initial Consultation
