Pursuing the Law
For the 12th consecutive year, the law firm of Fraser Stryker awarded diversity scholarships to deserving high school graduates.  
This year Denisse Navarro-Perez, a Brownell Talbot graduate; and Carolina Lopez, a Ralston High School graduate, were presented with college scholarships at a luncheon in their honor. Each scholarship is worth $2,500 a year for tuition, books, fees, etc. and is renewable each academic year. Students of African-American, Asian, Latino and Native-American origins are considered for the awards. The students must demonstrate financial need and express an interest in a career in the field of law. The students also have the opportunity to learn more about the practice of law through a summer paid internship at the firm.
Navarro-Perez, who is a member of the National Honor Society and served as a school ambassador, as well as volunteering at the Omaha Public Library and Sarpy County Teen Court, will attend Creighton University. Lopez, also a National Honor Society scholar and a “Rambassador,” also volunteers at the South Omaha Public Library and her church. She plans to attend the University of Nebraska - Lincoln.
