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.

“Dear Mr. John M. Murphy, Sr.,
I am writing to thank you for your generous forty thousand dollar scholarship. I was elated to learn of my selection for this honor and I am truly grateful for your support. I am a senior at the Frederick Douglass Academy 1 in Manhattan, NY. Since I will start college next fall, I plan to major in political science and pursue a career in law. My internship with Adam Leitman Bailey, P.C. helped me confirm my decision and I feel this is the best option for me. By awarding me this scholarship , you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. I am committed to maintaining a stellar grade point average and exceeding your expectations as a college student. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me.
My advice is to take advantage for everything the firm has to offer. Talk to everyone. Get to know your colleagues, because everyone has such a wealth of knowledge to bring to the table.
