2015 Freedom Scholarship Winner Announced!

We are pleased to announce that Taylar Hall,IMG_1398 a junior at Lincoln High School, has become the fifteenth recipient of our firm’s annual freedom scholarship essay contest.  Each year, our essay contest has grown more popular with students throughout   Leon, Wakulla, Gadsden and Jefferson counties.  In an effort to promote education and awareness of American liberties, we invite high school juniors and seniors to submit essays on “The Bill of Rights: What they mean to me as an American.”  The winning contestant, chosen by a celebrity panel of judges, is awarded $2,500 to assist with their future educational expenses.  To date, we have awarded $37,500 to our Freedom Scholarship winners!

Our esteemed judges this year included Leon County Circuit Court Judges, Angela Dempsey, Frank Sheffield, and Terry Lewis.  After the scores were calculated, the judges selected Taylar Hall as the winner of the 2015 Freedom Scholarship.  Taylar is the daughter of Darryl and Carol Hall.  Taylar is in the Student Government Association and has been elected to serve as Student Body President next year at Lincoln High School.  Taylar also serves as a lieutenant in the Lincoln High School Color Guard, and she sings in the choir and is on the dance team at Life Deliverance Ministries. Taylor, who plans to attend law school after college, will be trying out for the mock trial team next year.  Taylar has not decided which college she would like to attend, but she does plan to stay in Florida to be close to her family.  As stated in her winning essay, Taylar would like to go into politics, eventually running for President of the United States!  After meeting Taylar and her family, we have no doubt that she has a very bright future ahead of her.

Applications for our 2016 Freedom Scholarship essay will be distributed early next year.  If you would like more information about the scholarship, please visit our website,
