Schmidt Kramer is proud to announce that Jillian Susi has been selected as this year’s recipient of the Schmidt Kramer Annual Scholarship for Academic Excellence.
Each year, the firm awards one $1,500 scholarship to a college student who has exhibited superb scholastic success.
To be considered for the scholarship, candidates must be Pennsylvania residents currently enrolled in an accredited university or college within the state with a minimum GPA of 3.0.
Although academic excellence is a major component for selecting a candidate, we also ask each student to submit an essay based on a topic focused on different aspects of the legal system and its involvement within the community.
Ms. Susi captivated our attention with her insightful examination of this year’s topic on how the youth of today can help shape the future of the legal system.
Her essay highlights the extensive diversity found within her generation, and how the legal system can implement positive changes while seizing valuable opportunities by appealing to the diversity of millennials.
Ms. Susi's essay further detailed the technological prowess that millennials have over previous generations and that this strength and understanding of a rapidly advancing digital culture will greatly benefit the legal system by improving legal procedures and investigations.
Ms. Susi is currently enrolled at Pennsylvania State University with a 3.8 GPA and is expected to graduate on May 18, 2018. Her work provides a vital perspective into the future of our nation’s youth and how their hard work and dedication will impact the future of the U.S. legal system.
At Schmidt Kramer, we are strong supporters of our local community and believe in enhancing the educational experience and achievements of Pennsylvania’s students.
It is our honor to award Ms. Susi with the Schmidt Kramer Annual Scholarship for Academic Excellence. We congratulate her on a successful student career and wish her luck in her future endeavors.
