Our 2018 Strive for Excellence Scholarship Winner

The attorneys at Rhine Law Firm, P.C., in Wilmington, North Carolina, have experienced firsthand how empowering a secondary education can be. We believe that such an education is a “great equalizer,” allowing people from any background or situation to elevate their lives and reach for greater things.

This is why we’ve established the annual “Strive for Excellence Scholarship,” available to high school seniors and current college students across the Nation. This year, we received essays from over 700 entrants, and we were amazed at the responses we read. Many promising young scholars wrote to us, and we believe that our upcoming generation will be doing wonderful things.

Out of our scholarship finalists, we had a difficult time selecting a winner; but in the end, we were proud to choose:

Sophie B., from Glen Ellyn, Illinois!

Sophie Bair

We wish her great success in her academic endeavors and are proud to award her the $500 check. We invite you to read her winning essay on our website. To everyone else – thank you for applying, and good luck in your educational endeavors. We invite you to check back on our blog and Facebook page for future opportunities from Rhine Law Firm, P.C. The scholarship will likely be back next year, so please consider re-applying.
