At Finney Law Office, our tradition and our passion is law. We decided to do something less traditional by sharing our passion and enthusiasm for law with a new generation. For the first time ever, we offered a $1,000 scholarship to a senior high school student pursuing his or her future dreams in law or a related field. Applicants were asked to create a short persuasive video about why they are interested in law and how this scholarship will help them achieve their dreams.
We are proud to announce that Jasmine Newman has been selected as our very first winner for the $1,000 Future Leader’s Scholarship! As a senior graduate at Hazelwood East, Jasmine has selected Missouri State to continue her education pursuing Family Law.
“It’s when ordinary people rise above the expectations and seize the opportunity that milestones truly are reached.” It was Mike Huckabee’s quote that spoke to Jasmine. Her passion for public speaking, debating, and defending others has resonated throughout her high school career by participating in the Law & Advocacy forum where she won the Best Attorney Award in a mock trial. Writing out introductions, closings, and cross/direct examinations, she was able to experience the true expectations of a lawyer. Without hesitation, that trip was confirmation that her dreams of being a layer are set in stone and fully attainable.
We are excited about the opportunity to help Jasmine pursue her dreams in Family Law. Congratulations, Jasmine!
