Sharon Eruthickal graduated from New Milford High School, the home of Raymond “Hap” Harrison and Adam Leitman Bailey’s alma mater.
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.
All of the employees built a really good working environment here, its very casual but at the same time I can see all of the dedication and hard work despite it being so stressful and high pressure.
SCHOLARSHIP LUNCHEON 2017
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.
