For years, the attorneys at Cooper Hurley Injury Lawyers have been supporting good causes in our community and taking on young people as interns. Now, we are happy to be able to help further the reach of our efforts nationwide. We started our scholarship program to raise awareness about the dangers of distracted driving and to get students to think about ways to stay focused behind the wheel. Distracted driving is one of the most significant causes of accidents involving young people, and it is our goal that this scholarship will get applicants to think critically about those dangers and how they can be avoided by staying focused while driving. For this scholarship, we will award one student with a $2,000 Scholarship to put toward their education.
The winner will be awarded $2,000.
