This fall, Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. will provide the Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship to seven hard-working college students. Because the scholarship renews every year that winners maintain a specific GPA, Mr.Bailey will once again award the annual scholarship to senior Alejandro Hincapie, junior Brittany Amoroso, sophomore Raquel Beckford and sophomore Breanne Springstead. The scholarship will also be endowed to high school seniors Aissatou Diallo, Keilon La Barrie and Jennifer Teets.
Adam Leitman Bailey awarded the first RHH Scholarship in 2008 in honor of his high-school cross-country and track coach, Raymond “Hap” Harrison. The scholarship is awarded annually to high school graduates attending college. To receive the Harrison accolades, a recipient must possess many of the ideals and traits Raymond Harrison instilled in Mr. Bailey, including deep-seated values of success and the desire to make the world a better place through helping others. Additionally, the recipient must also demonstrate financial need and strong academic achievement.
The Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship is funded through the Building Foundations charity, founded by Adam Leitman Bailey in 2008. The charity’s mission is to assist students of all ages in pursuing their professional and personal dreams by providing financing, scholarships, education, internships, real-life experience and any other tools necessary to reach these dreams.
