As part of the Building Foundations organization, Adam Leitman Bailey founded the Raymond “Hap” Harrison scholarship a decade ago, in honor of his high school cross country and track coach, who inspired him greatly. Since then, the scholarship has been awarded each year to recent high school graduates planning to attend college in the fall.

This year’s recipients are paid interns who have worked with the firm throughout the school year and summer, and graduated from high school this past year: Tamia Hackworth, Edwin George, Daliza Galarza, Andrea Delacruz, and New Milford’s Tara Moat.
