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.
My name is Brittany Amoroso, I am 18 years old, I go to Milford High School in Milford, New Jersey and I just graduated from high school. And next year I’m going to be going to the college of New Jersey. I know Adam from my high school actually, he was a graduate of New Milford High School and he set up an internship program through the high school. And I was the second participant to be elected for the internship. I was also selected to receive Raymond “Hap” Harrison scholarship. It means a lot to me because not only that it was in the name of my English teacher who I adored. It also means a lot to me because it’s a lot of money that helps me out with college expenses and without it, it’s like, almost a third of the tuition. This scholarship means a lot to me, it’s going to reduce the cost of college and help me focus on different things rather than the money that will cost me to go to school. Like, instead of doing a work-study program, I will be able to focus more on my work and my homework, and doing well.
I think that my life would be a lot different because not only the scholarship is for one year, it could be renewed upon, if you have certain GPA and if you do well, you’ll get rewarded, which is.. Although I will be working hard every day but pushed to do really well, so it’s going to help a lot for four years, potentially.
Adam Leitman Bailey and his firm helped me in a huge way, I worked here last summer actually as an intern and I absolutely loved it Everyone is so nice and willing to help. And hopefully it will help me with job skills in the work force when I am eventually going to look for a job when I graduate college.
I just want to thank Adam so much, the entire work staff at ALBPC is amazing. And I just wanted to say that I love all of you. Thanks again.
