DeMayo Law Offices Awarding 25000 in Scholarships to Graduating Seniors

CHARLOTTE, NC (Oct. 13, 2008) – For the seventh consecutive year, the Michael A. DeMayo Scholarship program is pleased to offer high school seniors an opportunity to win a $2,500 scholarship toward their college education. The students are judged on a number of criteria including the submission of an essay on how to educate their peers and promote the prevention of underage drinking and driving.

DeMayo Law Offices, L.L.P. ® will be awarding $25,000 in college scholarships to 10 graduating high school seniors who reside and attend schools in counties served by the firm, including Mecklenburg, Gaston, Catawba, Union, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Lincoln, Rowan, Caldwell, York, Stanly, Iredell, Burke and Alexander counties.

To qualify, students must have applied for full-time enrollment at a four-year university or college and return the application packet to the law firm by March 2, 2009. Interested students can download the application online or pick up an application packet at their school’s guidance counselor’s office. Scholarships will be awarded based on the student’s response to an essay on how to prevent underage drinking and driving, as well as their application, SAT scores, transcripts and letters of recommendation. Winners will be chosen by a selection committee and announced on April 10, 2009.

“At our office we deal with drinking and driving accidents and the resulting deaths and injuries on almost a daily basis,” said Attorney Michael A. DeMayo, who has awarded $100,000 in scholarships since founding the program in 2003. “The scholarship program is part of our effort to reduce tragedies related to underage drinking and driving.”

The 10 winning essays will be published in a booklet and sent to community leaders and lawmakers with hope that the students’ observations and suggestions could help formulate public policy and increase awareness.

This is the seventh consecutive year of the Michael A. DeMayo Scholarship Program. The 2008 scholarship recipients were Lucas Anderson, home school; Ellen Bragg, Monroe High School; Brittney Cox, Parkwood High School; Heather Davis, Gaston Day School; Caitlin Goforth, Hickory Grove Baptist Christian; Alexis Gonzalez, Sun Valley High School; Hai-y Le, Olympic High School; Bill Mallett, Newton Conover Health Science High School; Jessica Robbins, Cannon School; and Amber Roberts, Independence High School.
