Florida criminal defense attorney Carey Meldon speaks about TV20's senior scholar athlete of the week program.
Meldon Law has sponsored the Scholar Athlete Program since 1997. Every week of the school year, a high school senior in the North Central Florida area is chosen as the Scholar-Athlete of the Week and given a $100 scholarship and a plaque. At the end of the school year we hold a banquet for all the winners and their families. Every year nearly 200 people attended the Scholar Athlete Banquet, where one male and one female is chosen as The Scholar Athlete of the Year. The winners receive a $1,000 scholarship plus a beautiful glass trophy commemorating their achievement. Starting in 2003 Meldon Law teamed up with WCJB TV20 to promote the event widely through the North Central Florida community.
