In an effort to encourage and assist local students at the Paul Laurence Dunbar High School in Fort Worth, Texas, the Law Offices of Eberstein & Witherite, LLP, established a scholarship fund designed to provide financial assistance to deserving graduating students. Eberstein & Witherite originally intended to award only two scholarships to deserving students. However, after sitting in on the reviewing panel, Amy Witherite, owner of Eberstein & Witherite determined all applicants earned the scholarship. She awarded all nine student applicants a $1000 scholarship.
In fact, Amy was so impressed after meeting and talking with each of the students, that instead of sticking to the original plan to offer 2 scholarships, she decided that each of the 9 students nominated should be offered a scholarship. Each of the scholarships offered by Eberstein & Witherite is worth $1,000.
