Put simply, a teacher is an individual who helps educate an individual on a particular topic or subject. However, teachers are much more than simply educators for our youth. Teachers and professors work selflessly to shape the lives of our youth, through educating, mentoring, instilling confidence, and guiding them through life to help them reach their aspirations. At Smith Hulsey Law, our attorneys have personal relationships with educators, that is why we are proud to announce our More Than A Teacher Scholarship to award two students with $1,000 to use towards achieving their academic goals. One $1,000 scholarship award will be awarded to a student within the state of Georgia, and a second scholarship award will be awarded to a student within the United States.
We want students to share with us a story about their favorite teacher or professor and how they have influenced their lives and/or education. Please include how your favorite teacher has influenced your outlook on life. We will award our scholarships to two students who share a warm, inspiring story that describes the appreciation of an educator. Our attorneys understand how dedicated our teachers are to be an inspiration for their students. That is why it is our hope that our More Than A Teacher Scholarship sheds light on the significant roles that teachers and professors play in our lives, not only as educators, but for their guidance and service towards our youth.
Applicants for our More Than A Teacher Scholarship must be enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program within the United States. High school seniors who will be enrolled in college before the application deadline of October 31, 2021 are also encouraged to apply.
