Breanne recently graduates and updates us on her future
Breanne Springstead, a recipient of the Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship Award, has recently graduated from Rutgers University. After four years at the University, Ms. Springstead has accomplished a lot, and she credits much of her success to having received the scholarship and Adam Leitman Bailey’s guidance.
With the Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholarship helping her afford her education, Ms. Springstead acknowledged how important that really was saying, “The scholarship really allowed me to focus on classes I wanted to take and making the most of college without that added worry of ‘how am I going to pay for this education?’”
Ms. Springstead, who will be graduating with the highest honors, recently reached out to Adam Leitman Bailey to thank him for all of his guidance, “As graduation approaches, I would like to say another huge thank you to you for all you have done for me over these past four years. My time at Rutgers has been unforgettable. I love everything about it: the people, the accomplishments, the challenges–everything. I’m sure you have heard already, but Obama will be speaking at the university commencement. I’m very excited to hear what he has to say.”
As for her future, Ms. Springstead is planning on traveling this summer and really narrowing her focus. Her career goals are to work in the media industry, with interests in marketing and social media. She is very grateful and appreciative that the scholarship has allowed her to achieve her dreams.
You realize how fast paced the real world is, there is always something to do and it was a new experience everyday”
Breanne updates us during her semester at Rutgers University
“This semester has been great! I’ve been going to football games and hanging out with my friends and boyfriend, all while managing to maintain my grades. A also try to always make time to get to see my family, even if we just FaceTime if I’m not home. Rutgers always has so much going on! Our apartments always have activities like family feud, zumba, or big pink volleyball and these events are always so much fun to participate in. If it weren’t for Adam’s help, I wouldn’t have as much time to participate in extracurriculars because I’d need to be working to pay for school. Thank you so much!”
SCHOLARSHIP LUNCHEON 2016
2016 Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholars Luncheon
These luncheons give the students time to talk with Mr. Bailey, seek advice from him and catch up. This year, there was a special guest via Skype, Raymond Harrison himself spoke to the group, sharing words of wisdom. Raymond Harrison was a track coach at New Milford High School and was a mentor to Adam Leitman Bailey, and in turn Mr. Bailey named the scholarship after him. Mr. Harrison shared how proud he is of the students and of Adam Leitman Bailey for his continued generosity in providing the scholarship year after year.
Throughout the lunch, the students reflected on their time with the firm and discussed what being a scholarship winner means to them. Each and every one of them would not be where they were today without both the financial support and mentorship given to them by Adam Leitman Bailey. The scholarship program has grown every year since it’s creation in 2008.
I just want to say thank you, without the scholarship, my time at Rutgers would have been totally different, and I just want to say thank you because despite the fact that I worked here five years ago, I’m still getting help from Adam…
