RALEIGH, NC, June 04, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Brady Cobin Law Group, PLLC is pleased to award two scholarships totaling $4,000 to the deserving students who were chosen as the winners of the firm's 2021 essay contest.
Congratulations to the winners:
1st Place, $2,500—Ademidun Adesola
2nd Place, $1,500—Ashton Monk
The applicants for the scholarship were asked to write an essay on one of three selected topics. Both winners chose to write on the topic of legacy:
What does legacy mean to you? What do you think it means to leave a legacy? Are there different kinds of valuable legacies? What sort of legacy do you want to leave behind?
In her winning essay, Ademidun Adesola wrote, "Legacy to me means leaving your footprints so deep in the sand that it can never be washed away; something that was so great, it cannot be forgotten. Leaving a legacy means leaving the world with a permanent mark, nothing and no one can scrape it out. Some legacies are so important that they define what will happen for generations. Leaving a legacy does not entirely entail having assets and large wealth but how one uses their resources for the betterment of others."
