The WV Bar Foundation’s Board of Directors is pleased to announce the awarding of its Public Service Scholarship to Michael Nissim-Sabat, a second year student at the West Virginia University College of Law. He was selected through the Law School’s scholarship selection process based upon the criteria of making a commitment to be involved in public service activities upon the completion of his law school education.
In receiving the full scholarship for the second time, Michael sent the following message to the Board—“Again, thank you very much for the very generous gift. This scholarship has provided me such wonderful opportunities. I am now the President of Public Interest Advocates at WVU, and we are looking to expand our fellowship opportunities for our student body.”
Congratulations to Michael and good luck to him as he continues his legal education at the WVU College of Law!
