James Choi awarded $2,000 PBA scholarship

Palmetto High School sen- ior James Seungyeon Choi is the 2012 winner of the annual $2,000 scholarship awarded jointly by the Village-based law firm Panter, Panter & Sampedro.

Choi received a symbolic check at the association’s May luncheon. The scholar- ship is payable to the student’s designated college or university.

To qualify for the scholarship, students must attend either Gulliver Prep or Palmetto Senior High, hold a minimum grade point average of 3.5 and provide recommenda- tions from at least one teacher and a guid- ance counselor. They also must write a com- prehensive answer to an essay question, submit transcripts, a complete resume and a community service record.

“Every year it amazes me what these stu- dents have accomplished during their high school career,” said attorney Mitchell Panter. “Not only are they brilliant, but they are also extremely invested in their community, pro- viding hundreds of hours of service. It is an honor to help fund their collegiate career. We look forward to all that Mr. Choi will accomplish throughout college and beyond.”

Panter, Panter, & Sampedro has been active in the Pinecrest Business Association since it was founded in 2000. Brett Panter is a co-founder of the organi- zation, while Mitch Panter is a past presi- dent and serves on the board of directors.
