The team at Wingate, Rusotti, Shapiro & Halperin, LLP, is truly impressed by the outpouring of support for the Foundation For Your Future Scholarship and have been busily reading and re-reading our finalist’s essays. After much deliberation and a lively, thorough debate (we are lawyers, of course) we have selected one winner to receive a $2,500 scholarship.
We invite you all to join us in congratulating the 2020 winner of the Foundation For Your Future Scholarship:
Alyssa T. from Morgan Hill, CA
Alyssa, step forward and claim your well-earned prize! Your essay was difficult to put down and your keen eye for language was truly captivating. You showed us all the importance of determination, resolve, and ultimately, compassion. We are grateful that you shared not only your own story, but your father’s, and we will always remember his words of strength. We are proud to name you the winner of the Foundation For Your Future Scholarship as you work towards completely your degree and expanding the Walls to Bridges project. Everyone is welcome to read Alyssa’s essay, along with previous years’ winners, to see just how this amazing individual has inspired us.
And to everyone else who applied, we thank you for stepping up to the plate and sharing who inspires you with us. We have learned so much while reading your essays and cannot wait to see how all your inspirations carry you into the future.
