GREENSPOON MARDER CONGRATULATES RECIPIENT OF THE “GREENSPOON MARDER MINORITY LAW STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP,” STEPHANIE BURKES
FORT LAUDERDALE – September 12, 2016 – Greenspoon Marder congratulates Stephanie Burkes, the recipient of the Greenspoon Marder Diversity Scholarship Program for Law Students. Ms. Burkes is currently a law student at Florida Coastal School of Law pursuing her Juris Doctor with a focus in family law, juvenile justice, and dependency and adoption law, and criminal law. She maintains a 3.24 cumulative GPA, and has excelled in her classes over the last year.
As part of the firm’s steadfast commitment to diversity and the communities in which we live and operate, the Greenspoon Marder Diversity Scholarship Program for Law Students was established, with the Community Foundation of Sarasota County, to provide financial assistance and the opportunity for a law clerk internship at the firm to deserving minority law students. Evett Simmons, shareholder and Chief Diversity Officer, oversees the annual scholarship program. The mission of the program is to encourage racial and ethnic minority students, groups that are traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession, to attend law school and provide financial assistance to these students.
Ms. Burkes’ career goals consist of merging the practice of social work and law. She is currently working to successfully complete these goals through continued practice in behavioral health, studies in law and social policy, and founding a non-profit community-based program that focuses on fostering the movement of youth and law/ social policy. Greenspoon Marder is proud to support Ms. Burkes in her journey to reaching her career goals.
