The team at Yates & Wheland places high value on engendering sense of purpose, aspiration, and work ethic within our community’s youth. Having gone through the long process of obtaining both undergraduate and law school degrees, Attorneys Allen Yates and Charles Wheland understand the importance of clearly laying out one’s future goals and foreseeing the pathway to attain them. In today’s trying times, it may prove difficult to keep our spirits high and our eyes set on our future goals. In an effort to motivate our future young leaders to continue following their dreams, Yates & Wheland is proud to offer the 2021 Driven Decade Scholarship!
This $1,000 scholarship was created to reward those in our community who have a clear vision of where they might want to end up or who they want to become. In approximately 750-1,000 words, respond to the following prompt: Where do you see yourself 10 years from now? Tell us about where you might live, what occupation or career you may have, or any other kind of goals you aspire to achieve within the next decade of your life, and how you might plan to get there.
The recipient of the Driven Decade Scholarship will be chosen during the month following the scholarship deadline.
