Attorney Mitchell Greenberg knows the value of hard work. It's one of the reasons he chose to become a workers' compensation lawyer! He wants to protect those who willfully work hard to support their families and unjustly suffer for it due to the negligence of another. Mitchell not only works hard fighting for his clients in court, but also in his international stick-fighting competitions. He took part in the international championships for the World Eskrima Kali Arnis Federation (Filipino stick-fighting) and won four gold medals. Mitchell learned early in his life that hard work pays off.
Mitch believes those who work hard will succeed in life. It is essential to not only work hard for yourself but also to set an example for others, such as your children. For this scholarship, applicants can explain the hard work they do, why they do it, and answer the following questions:
What do you think it takes to make a willful worker?
Why is it important to persist, even when your work becomes difficult?
Mitchell Greenberg wants to hear your real life examples. This $1,000 scholarship will be awarded to the student whose essay best conveys why they are a willful worker and how their hard work paid off in the end. It is our hope that this scholarship will encourage students to work hard to achieve their dreams and create the best lives for themselves.
