Congratulations to Jennifer Teets, who has been named the eighth recipient of the Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship. Ms Teets is a member of the 2013 graduating class of New Milford High School. Adam Leitman Bailey started this scholarship in honor of his high school cross country and track coach, Raymond “Hap” Harrison. The scholarship is awarded annually to a High School graduate that will be attending college. Mr. Bailey is a 1988 graduate of New Milford High School.
To receive the Harrison accolades, a recipient must possess many of the ideals and traits that Raymond Harrison instilled in Adam Leitman Bailey. The recipient must also demonstrate financial need and strong academic achievement, while at the same time pursuing Mr. Harrison’s deep-seated values of success and the desire to make the world a better place through helping others.
Jennifer was a paid intern at Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. for the summer of 2012. She was chosen through a program where the principal and teachers select one student out of the entire school to receive this internship opportunity. Ms. Teets graduates second in her class in addition to being an outstanding track and soccer athlete. In the fall, Ms. Teets will be attending The College of New Jersey. She has successfully demonstrated all of the qualities required to become another Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship winner.
