darius liely-Adejo awarded $1000 ala diversity scholarship
For the seventh year in a row, the MD Chapter of the Association of Legal Administrators has provided a college scholarship opportunity to all Maryland students, entitled “What Diversity Means to Me.” Incepted in 2008 as part of the Maryland ALA’s Diversity & Inclusion Initiative, students entering the 10th, 11th or 12th grades could apply with the submission of a transcript, recommendation letter, and 500-maximum-word essay focusing on diversity.
Once offered as a $500 scholarship, the award has increased to $1,000 and is given to two deserving students.
This year, we are delighted to announce that one of our own – Darius Liely-Adejo – an entering senior with KASA College Preparatory School, has been awarded one of the scholarships for his entry entitled, "The Most Important Factor." Darius participated in the 2014 Law Links Internship, where he interned with Duane Morris, LLP. Our hats off to Darius as he begins his senior year!
