Edwin George graduated from Our Savior Lutheran High School with honors, receiving the Principal’s Award for his enormous involvement in and outside of school. After interning with Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. in 2017, Edwin is on his way to Ithaca College to study Business Administration with a minor in Public Relations and Image Management.
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.
2017 Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholars Luncheon
Scholarship recipients, old and new, joined Adam Leitman Bailey on Thursday, July 27th, 2017 for the annual Scholars Luncheon. Taking in the new scenery everyone reflected upon their time, thanking Adam for the opportunities and experiences he provided.
Each year Building Foundations and Dreams sits down with these inspiring students (from the most recent university graduates to rising college freshmen) to honor their hard work and celebrate their outstanding achievements, both inside and out of the classroom. At the annual luncheon, the recipients have the chance to talk one-on-one with Mr. Bailey, network with one another, and provide Adam with their latest updates – new jobs, awards received in the previous semester, and other exciting adventures in their personal and professional lives. This year was particularly special, as it marked the tenth year of the scholarship’s existence.
“I have a deeper understanding of what I want for my life and what type of company I want to work for…”
Today is my last day at ALBPC. This Sunday, I will be moving to my dorm at Ithaca College where I’ll be majoring in Business Administration with a concentration in both marketing and management.
For the past ten months that I’ve been interning at the firm I have grown as a person and a young professional. I have a deeper understanding of what I want for my life and what type of company I want to work for or perhaps own. Thank you all for welcoming and accepting me to the ALBPC family.
Adam: Thank you for being a mentor. I have learned so much from you in the short time that I’ve been here.
Brianna: Thank you for believing in me and my potential to excel at the company.
Montse, Gio, Desi, & Anne: Thank you for always keeping me busy and constantly challenging me for the better.
Barry: Thank you for trusting me with projects that I could of never seen coming as an intern.
Of course this is not a goodbye, but a farewell. As my journey progresses throughout college I will make sure to follow up with you guys and keep you updated. Even when I am 226 miles away, I will only be one email or phone call away.
Thank you ALBPC for such an amazing ten months!
