The Genesee County Bar Foundation has announced that applications are being accepted for the John S. Beagle Scholarship established to assist students from Genesee County, with financial support while in their second or third level of law school. According to the news release, it is through the generosity of the late John S. Beagle and his family that the scholarship has been established.
Beagle was a distinguished member of the Genesee County Bar Foundation and Genesee County Bar Association. He was affectionately known as “Legal Beagle,” a man of irreproachable character and good will who had a passion for justice. He was also a man who recognized the struggles of those less fortunate and thought that economics should not be a barrier to attending law school. Those fortunate enough to be the recipient of a John S. Beagle Scholarship will never have the opportunity to know this eminent attorney, but his memory will be embraced by those he helped.
A minimum scholarship of $5,000 will be awarded. The application deadline is May 1. For those interested in learning more about the Genesee County Bar Foundation and the John S. Beagle Scholarship, information can be found at www.gcbalaw.org or by calling the Foundation at (810) 232-6000.
