LEXINGTON, KY, August 24, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/
-- "Of all the submissions we received and judged, Christian's clearly stood out above the rest," said W. Thomas Bunch, II, one of the partners of the firm. "It's an honor to be able to contribute to furthering Christian's education. He's got a first-rate mind and he writes very well, two attributes that will be very useful in the legal profession. We feel as if this award is more of an investment in the legal community than simply helping a contest winner."
After graduating from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., Rice worked as a policy analyst in the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Science, Space and Technology. Originally from La Mesa, Calif., Rice majored in government and minored in philosophy as an undergraduate; he will attend The University of Virginia's School of Law, founded in 1819 by Thomas Jefferson in Charlottesville, VA, in the fall 2017 semester.
After his work for the Committee, last year Rice accepted a position as coordinator of public relations and as a contributing writer for the National Agricultural Aviation Association (NAAA), where he specializes in aerospace issues, focusing on unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV).
The Bunch & Brock Scholarship contest is designed to award future law students who have extraordinary talent and help them financially with their future education. To apply, the future student must submit a written piece that was published in a magazine, journal or newspaper. The applicant must also be a U.S. citizen or be authorized to work in the U.S., provide a copy of the school acceptance letter indicating that he or she will be attending law school in the fall of 2017 and provide a copy or link to the publication. The award recipient is selected solely on their written submission, as judged by representatives of Bunch & Brock.
"The article was very well-written, very comprehensive and thoroughly thought out," Bunch said. "Mr. Rice employs skills that will serve him well in the future. It truly is an honor and privilege to recognize future leaders like him --- we are simply glad to be able to contribute to some of the brightest minds in the profession. They'll carry on after most of us have retired, and we're confident they'll not only sustain, but raise the standards of those legal practitioners."
Bunch said his firm looks forward to offering the contest again next year, and encourages potential participants to watch the firm's web site for details.
"We feel that with the success we've had with the scholarship contest this year, it will be even better in the future," Bunch said.
