NP Scholars Day included a formal scholarship presentation, a meet and greet luncheon, a tour of the NP Columbia office, and informative sessions where recipients heard from and interacted with attorneys of various experience levels, including NP Board Chairman, John Sowards, and NP Director of Marketing and Business Development, Heather McCullough. 

“The goal for NP Scholars Day is to allow these students an opportunity to come in and get to know Nexsen Pruet as a firm – both from a professional and a personal standpoint,” says Nexsen Pruet Board Chairman John Sowards, “… and to give us a chance to personally congratulate them on being selected as a NP Scholar.”

This is the 7th consecutive year that Nexsen Pruet has awarded scholarships to deserving law school candidates across the Carolinas. All scholarship recipients will be considered for summer employment in one of the Nexsen Pruet offices upon completion of their first year of law school.  Scholarship recipients are invited to re-apply for additional scholarships during their second and third years of law school.
