We Are Excited to Announce the Winner of the 2017 Yost Legal Group College Scholarship Essay Program!
At the Yost Legal Group, Attorneys at Law, we are thrilled to be able to help students and members of the community succeed by offering programs like the Yost Legal Group College Scholarship Essay Program.
The program awards a $1,000 scholarship each year for the recipient to put towards tuition to pursue any field of study from an accredited college.
This year’s essay topic was on how adversity has affected your life. The essay program was open to all prospective or current undergraduate students attending an accredited college or university.
The 2017 winner of the $1,000 The Yost Legal Group College Scholarship Essay Program is Edward, a freshman at Virginia Tech.
Edward chose to write his essay on the experiences he went through as a young boy. He described the obstacles he had to go through, most of the time alone, and how these obstacles shaped him into the young man he is today.
He also touched on how he now has a great appreciation for his struggles and for his mother, who worked hard to provide for him. He reflected on how the key to overcoming adversity throughout his childhood was finding his inner happiness.
Edward is a determined and bright young man who has grown to understand that his difficult experiences led him to where he is today. His reflections have also harvested a new love for his mother and for all she did for him. Most importantly, he has learned that self-acceptance can help you figure out exactly where you belong in this world.
Thank you to all students who submitted an essay this year! Each and every one was eye-opening and all of you have such bright futures. We look forward to seeing what next year will bring!
Congratulations, Edward, from everyone at The Yost Legal Group
