As your source for accident and elder abuse lawyers in Gloucester County, the Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka believe in giving back and doing our part for the community we are such a part of. This year, our office sponsored and played in the Ike Willis Scholarship Golf Outing for Pennsauken High School.
For the past 26 years, total proceeds from the Ike Willis Scholarship Outing have funded $200,000 worth of scholarships for graduating seniors from Pennsauken High School.
A former teacher within the Pennsauken school system, Ike Willis was deeply committed to the youth of his local townships. The scholarship fund was created to commemorate and continue his pride in the schools and the community of Pennsauken, and is awarded to Pennsauken High School students who exhibit character traits that Ike himself prized, such as work ethic, enthusiasm, and community service.
Each year, ten students are selected for scholarships. Those chosen consist of both one male and one female athlete who are hard-working, spirited, and involved team players. The remainder of those chosen are comprised of one representative from every athletic discipline to help them further their education in college.
This past September, ten scholarship recipients from the class of 2018 walked into college classrooms with the help of Ciecka Law’s involvement, two of whom are at Haverford College and another at Georgia Tech. Through Ciecka Law’s participation in the outing, sponsorship of a sign, and monetary donation to the 28th Ike Willis Scholarship Golf Outing, $10,020 was raised on October 2nd. Next June, the money will be awarded to graduating seniors from the class of 2019.
