Community Involvement Scholarship, 2019
The team at Eglet Adams feels fortunate that we regularly get to do work in our community that we are passionate about. Our professional jobs allow us to fight for the rights of people who have been unfairly injured by others who are negligent or malicious. At the end of the day, we feel good about helping innocent injury victims and their families to recover the financial compensation they need and that is there right. Our success with our personal injury law firm has given us opportunities to also help people in our community through outreach, volunteering, and contributions. Many of us have grown up, gone to school, and settled in our community of Las Vegas- and highly value being a part of this community and being able to help make it a better place for all of its members.
We have created the Eglet Adams, Community Involvement Scholarship, 2019, to support the education of a student who is committed to helping protect the rights of others and to being involved with their community to help make it a better place for all of its members. We believe that education, along with a passion and drive, is empowering for those who want to be community advocates and to stand up for the rights of others. By investing in the education of a student who wants to promote, and to uphold values and goals similar to our own, we feel that we will be investing in a more positive future.
