Lexington Law Announces First Scholarship Winner

The firm has pledged $50,000 towards a scholarship fund. $5,000 scholarships will be awarded from this fund, twice per year for spring and fall semester. It will be available to United States students in accredited universities or colleges who maintain a good GPA. The award will be presented twice per year and will be based in part upon an essay describing what credit scores mean to the scholarship recipient and how they will use that credit score in the future and how they will maintain a good credit score moving forward.

We’re very pleased to present this scholarship award today. And we’re very pleased to have an opportunity to give back to our communities, to our state, and to our country that has given us an opportunity to do so well in this area of practice. It is, therefore, with great pleasure that I introduce Lexington Law Firm’s first five thousand dollar scholarship recipient so without further ado I’d like to introduce Mr. Ryan Running.
