Meet Our Rise To Shine Scholarship Winner!

Meet Our Rise To Shine Scholarship Winner!

The first year of running the Rise To Shine Scholarship has been wonderful for us! Allen, Flatt, Ballidis & Leslie reviewed over 200 essays to come up with five finalists. Then, we re-read essays and reviewed the transcripts of our finalists to come up with the undisputed winner:

Colin R. from North Baldwin, NY, because you Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop (and we want to help you keep going)!

Congratulations! You’ve won $1,000 toward your college expenses. We loved the way you embraced your flaws and your strengths, making them both work for you—and the betterment of your community. Our legal team is excited to see what you accomplish in your time at St. John’s University Honors College, and beyond. Thank you for applying; you’ve done a wonderful job.

Thank You, Applicants!

To our other finalists, and every single student who applied to our 2019 scholarship, we extend a huge thank-you. Best wishes from our law firm to you as you embark on this important journey of knowledge, which will have lasting effects for the rest of your life.

Also, please consider coming back next year for our 2020 edition of Rise To Shine: the Scholarship! Visit our blog and Facebook page for the official announcement.

Continue to work toward being the best you!
