Scholarship Program 2017 - - - - - -
In 1969, Waco LPA adopted a Scholarship Memorials program. Donations given in honor or memory of an individual are placed in a special fund used to provide scholarships for deserving students desiring to become legal secretaries, legal assistants, or paralegals. The program is funded by donations in memory of someone or in honor of someone, in the amount of $25 or more; funds raised from raffles and auction items at our meetings; and profits resulting from educational seminars. When memorial/honorary donations are made, the honoree/deceased person's name is placed on a plaque located on the 4th floor of the McLennan County Courthouse. Recipients of scholarships are chosen based upon merit and ability. Depending on the amount of funds available, Waco LPA awards one or more scholarships per year. If you would like to contribute to the scholarship fund and invest in the future of a legal professional, contact Kristy Turner, PP, PLS, CP, TSC, Scholarship Chairman firstname.lastname@example.org
