Panter, Panter & Sampedro is proud to announce that it has awarded Emilee Garcia of Miami Killian Senior High School as the 2021 recipient of the Lorraine Silverstein Law Studies Scholarship. The scholarship was presented to Garcia during the Miami Killian Senior High School Awards Ceremony, on Wednesday, May 12th, 2021.
Garcia demonstrated a strong commitment to the law program throughout her entire high school career. She participated at the highest level in all aspects of the Miami Killian law program with pride and scholarship including Mock Trial, We the People, and Moot Court.
“This award represents our commitment to the next generation. Students like Emilee Garcia are our future co-counsels, opposing counsels, judges, and community members. We feel honored to be part of her legal journey in this way. Congratulations, Emilee! We cannot wait to see what you do next,” says Mitchell Panter, managing partner of Panter, Panter, & Sampedro.
“I’ve participated in the We The People Law Competition where Mr. Panter gave us pointers about how to respond and approach certain topics. Mr. Panter was always kind and really made an effort to teach us,” said Garcia. “When I found out Panter, Panter & Sampedro was awarding me the scholarship, I was super excited to know that my hard work paid off and that some of my knowledge came from Mr. Panter himself. In the fall, I plan to continue my education at Miami Dade Honors College, where I’ll be majoring in political science, in hopes to one day become an attorney.
