BETHLEHEM, Pa., April 21, 2014 – On May 17 Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its Annual Best of the Best Scholarships Program. The law firm will award scholarship assistance to 37 Lehigh Valley, Hunterdon and Warren County high school students at the Event Center at Blue in Bethlehem.
The Best of the Best Scholarship Program was established by Martye Cohen and Dennis Feeley in 1994 to recognize one outstanding high school student from each high school in the Lehigh Valley. The program added 10 high schools in Hunterdon and Warren counties in 2013.
“The kids receiving these scholarships are selected through a committee that considers their academic achievements, extracurricular activities and the challenges they have overcome to excel at school and in life,” explained Martin D. Cohen, founding partner of the personal injury and commercial litigation law firm. “They are, without question, the best of the best.”
In addition, one male and one female from the Lehigh Valley and Warren and Hunterdon Counties is selected from the 37 honorees to be named overall Best of the Best. Two other students from all the applicants are granted the Team Capital Bank Community Service Award.
“Martye and I started Best of the Best 20 years ago to help make a difference in people’s lives,” said Dennis Feeley, a partner at Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo. “In the past 20 years we’ve provided assistance to nearly 700 area high school students and helped improve their lives and their communities at the same time.”
In the spirit of the program’s efforts to give back, the law firm also makes charitable donations in the name of each award recipient to a charity of the student’s choice.
The scheduled keynote speaker for the May 17 breakfast ceremony will be Temple Law School Dean JoAnne A. Epps.
