At Harris Personal Injury Lawyers, Inc., we value education and believe all students should have the opportunity to pursue higher education and success. Twice a year, our firm awards a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving student who has suffered a personal injury and, despite adversity, is dedicated to furthering their education and career goals.
Being a personal injury law firm, our team understands the difficult process of rehabilitation and recovery accident victims often face after being seriously injured. Our clients rely on our assistance to not only help them recover compensation from those who caused their injuries but also to help them recover from physical injuries to resume a normal life. We know that sustaining an injury, life-threatening or not, can burden one’s financial future. As a result, we value the opportunity to give back to those students who have been injured and demonstrate perseverance to further their educational goals.
This year’s essay contest winner is Sean Bresnahan. Sean suffered a multitude of ailments including a broken shoulder, two broken legs, fractures to his skull, and multiple lacerations, tearings, and sprains after being struck by a distracted driver while he was walking to his bus stop in high school.
Sean worked tirelessly and diligently to recover from the resulting surgeries and rehabilitation to relearn how to walk and carry on with his vocational studies. He has used this experience to push himself to become his very best and seek out higher education to work towards a career in helping others as a doctor. Sean’s accomplishments have given him confidence in his independence and abilities to see his own potential and capabilities.
“I told myself, even through doubts, that if I could relearn how to walk, I could learn anything that I wanted to.”
Sean has begun attending St. Cloud State University in Minnesota and is excelling in his studies there. He’s excited to be working towards his goals and we are honored to offer him this scholarship. We’re so proud to be a part of Sean’s journey and wish him all the best!
