Sobo & Sobo Announces Honorable Mentions for Annual Scholarship Essay Contest

MIDDLETOWN, NY – Sobo & Sobo, LLP. today announced the honorable mentions of the 2020 Annual Sobo & Sobo Scholarship from schools throughout the Greater Hudson Valley and New York City. Due to social distance requirements the local receptions at which all winners were to be recognized were cancelled.

Following an online application process, which included an essay exploring the implications of technology on personal injury, finalists from over 35 schools in 5 counties were selected for in-person interviews. Greg Sobo, Founder & CEO, noted that, “We were thrilled by the caliber of entries we received and humbled by the volume of interest in our scholarship. The depth of passion, ingenuity and overall potential for this next generation is truly heartening.”

The committee reviewed each application individually to determine the scholarship recipients. One honorable mention was selected from each school that submitted applicants. Halie Every from Millbrook High School included this particularly insightful thought in her essay, “our cars themselves are becoming more and more distracting. Take for example my mom’s car, a 2019 Honda CRV. The car basically has a tablet attached to its dashboard. You can type full addresses and messages on it while driving. It’s ridiculous what the device is capable of doing.”

Please help us to recognize these students.
