Polk students eligible for Sheffron Law Firm work scholarship

Published 6:39pm Sunday, September 22, 2013

The staff of Sheffron Law Firm recently selected Carolina Siliceo Perez to receive the firm’s first $1,000 Outstanding Working Student Scholarship.

Although this is the first year Sheffron Law Firm has offered the scholarship, the firm intends on providing the Outstanding Working Student Scholarship for many years to come.

“We are grateful to be in a position to offer this scholarship to Ms. Perez and we look forward to awarding a deserving student every year. The idea behind the scholarship is to recognize a local student, who despite maintaining employment, is hard at work improving themself through education,” said senior partner and attorney Scott Sheffron.

In addition to being an outstanding student, eligible students must be from Henderson, Polk or Transylvania County, attending an accredited degree-granting college or university within the Southern Appalachian region, and be employed for a minimum of 20 hours per week. Applicants were required to submit a completed scholarship application, a short essay, proof of employment for the last six months and a certified copy of their most recent school transcript.

Sheffron Law Firm, P.A. is a full service litigation and consulting firm in Hendersonville, N.C.
