At The Law Office of Kevin J. Roach, LLC we believe that everyone deserves to have access to an education system that accommodates their specific needs. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. Our country’s education system has many flaws that provide students with disadvantages, hindering their experience along the way.
Through the Education Matter Scholarship, students were encouraged to speak about their personal experiences within the education system, both positive and negative, and provide their thoughts as to how it could be improved. Please see our recent scholarship recipient below.
We would like to congratulate Sarah Escobar, the first winner of the Education Matter Scholarship! Sarah is a Texas-born student of iSchool High at the Woodlands. She recently graduated and is working towards going to college and getting a degree in animation in hopes of making her own cartoon one day. She is currently working as a digital artist who makes her own stories and helps other people’s characters come to life. Here is what Sarah had to say when she found out she was selected as the winner of the Education Matters Scholarship:
“To be honest I was not expecting to win the scholarship at all. I didn’t know if my essay would meet the standards of the scholarship, but now I feel incredibly relieved that it did. I feel a lot more excited about enrolling in college, and perhaps my essay will help someone, who knows? But regardless I’m very happy that my essay won and it’s given me a bit of confidence in my writing as well. Thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to get closer to paying for college.”
