Wednesday, May 14, 2014

This year, the personal injury law firm of Allen & Allen received over 400 scholarship applications from high school seniors throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia. Fifteen of those outstanding students were selected to win the George E. Allen Academic Scholarship – a college scholarship in the amount of $1,500 for each student. On May 13th, 2014, Allen & Allen honored these fifteen students along with their guests at an awards ceremony and dinner at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden in Richmond, Virginia. The firm's Scholarship Program recognizes students who have overcome unusual obstacles or special challenges, while achieving high standards of community service and academic performance.
