CONGRATULATIONS TO J.R. HAMILTON!
Our team at Rizio Lipinsky is thrilled to announce that J.R. Hamilton has won the Rizio Lipinsky Law School Scholarship for 2020. This month, J.R. began his first semester (remotely) at Harvard Law School as an incoming 1L, after becoming the first in his family to graduate from college.
J.R.’S INSPIRING PERSONAL STORY:
J.R.’s essay submission detailed the painful loss of his father 6 years ago from an opiate overdose. As personally tragic as the loss was, J.R. went into incredible detail about how common this experience is for those in his home state of West Virginia, and throughout Appalachia.
“I think it would be hard to find someone who hasn’t lost a family member or friend to this epidemic,” J.R. said.
