Tara Moat is a graduate of New Milford High School, the home of Raymond “Hap” Harrison and Adam Leitman Bailey’s alma mater. She will be attending The College of New Jersey, where she will be majoring in Mathematics.
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.
SCHOLARSHIP LUNCHEON 2017
2017 Raymond “Hap” Harrison Scholars Luncheon
Scholarship recipients, old and new, joined Adam Leitman Bailey at the new firm offices on Thursday, July 27th, 2017 for the annual Scholars Luncheon. Taking in the scenery (for all but our current high school interns, it was their first visit to the Battery Park space), everyone reflected upon their experiences in high school and college, thanking Adam for the opportunities and experiences he provided.
Each year, Adam Leitman Bailey, in conjunction with 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 Mr. Bailey 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.
