The Charleston, S.C. law firm has selected students from Stratford High School, North Myrtle Beach High School, Lexington High School, Carvers Bay High School, Hanahan High School and Summerville High School to receive $2,000 college scholarships.
CHARLESTON, SC, June 28, 2017 — Joye Law Firm is proud to announce that it has selected six South Carolina seniors to receive $2,000 Joye in the Community scholarships, as part of the firm’s eleventh annual scholarship contest.
The winners include Sarah McDowell of Stratford High School in Goose Creek, SC; Keyana Durant of North Myrtle Beach High School in Little River, SC; Liam Myhill of Lexington High School in Lexington, SC; Armani Sumpter of Carvers Bay High School in Hemingway, SC; Mariam Amireh of Hanahan High School in Hanahan, SC; and Jeremy Flood of Summerville High School in Summerville, SC.
“We’re very pleased to extend awards to these six students,” said Joye Law Firm’s Managing Partner Ken Harrell. “Each is very deserving, and we are sure that they have a bright future.”
The Joye Law Firm scholarship program has awarded nearly $175,000 to college-bound seniors from across South Carolina.
“Our goal has always been to give back to our local communities and to ensure that we recognize and reward the outstanding students,” said Harrell.
The contest, which ran from January 1 through April 1, selected students based on a thorough review of their completed application, transcripts, community involvement and creative entry, which demonstrated the dangers associated with drunk and distracted driving.
Each year, Joye Law Firm receives scholarship entries from across South Carolina. This year, the firm received a record number of applications.
“It was extremely difficult to choose only six students, but it showed us just how intelligent, talented and ambitious our future generation of leaders truly is and how we should expect great things from them,” concluded Harrell.
