To the Editor:
On behalf of the State Bar of Georgia, I wish to extend congratulations to local high school seniors Asia Hypsher, Isaac Konigsmark, Peyton Maldonaldo, Elizabeth Poland and Gianni Carter Whiteside on receiving $6,000 each from the Alexis Grubbs Memorial Scholarship Fund to help fund their college education. Additionally, previous recipients Shivani Patel and Jazma Parker received $2,500 each for their post-graduate studies.
We further salute the members of the Cobb County Bar Association and the Cobb County Legal Secretaries Association, who established and administer the fund in memory of Alexis Grubbs, daughter of retired Cobb County Superior Court Judge Adele Grubbs.
The members of the State Bar of Georgia know that a good education is the key to future success. We are inspired by our fellow legal professionals' worthy effort to serve the community by providing assistance these deserving local students.
Patrick T. O'Connor
President, State Bar of Georgia
