Announcing our 2021 “Texts=Wrecks” Scholarship finalists!

We at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys know too well how devastating texting while driving can be. Many of our clients have been severely injured by negligent drivers who apparently thought their phones were more important than others’ lives on the road.

That’s why we started our “Texts=Wrecks” scholarship – to encourage today’s students to lead a movement for people to put down our phones and consider the consequences of decisions more carefully.

Considering how difficult the past year has been, especially for students, we weren’t sure how many would apply. However, you surprised us with an avalanche of applications! Your essays were full of hope and passion for the future, with the kind of determination that will truly make the world a better place.

While we would love to reward each of you, we can only select a few to be our finalists. These students showed a deep thoughtfulness in responding to the writing prompt and made us pause and reflect on our own responsibilities and decisions. We know that each of our finalists has a bright future ahead. Please join us in congratulating these finalists:

  • Murphy D. – Big Flats, NY
  • Chandler P. – Spartanburg, SC
  • Kade T. – Lafayette, LA
  • Lauren M. – Versailles, OH
  • James H. – Hayes, VA

While the deadline for this year’s scholarship has passed, we encourage everyone to apply again next year. High school seniors and current college students are eligible for our “Texts=Wrecks” Scholarship.

We will announce the winner for our 2021 scholarship on June 1, 2021. To keep up with our law firm, please check out our blog, as well as our Facebook page.

Thank you to everyone who applied. It isn’t easy to put yourself out there, and the hard work you put into your essays was praiseworthy. We at GibsonSingleton Virginia Injury Attorneys wish you all the best in your future endeavors!
