At Brooks Law Group, we’ve always been passionate advocates for client rights. As we celebrate over 25 years in business, it seems fitting to reflect on the impact we have had in our community as well. The Brooks team has had a strong philanthropic culture and a heart for the state of Florida. Steve and Beach Brooks grew up in Winter Haven, FL and have a desire to give back to the future generations of Florida students. In an effort to build up our community and the future of Florida, we are proud to announce the biannual Brooks Law Group Scholarship.

Essay Topic:
Student debt is a growing issue in the United States. In 2020, the US surpassed $1.7 trillion in student debt. There have been different proposals for how to fix this problem, including pausing loan payments during the COVID-19 pandemic and forgiving a certain amount of debt altogether. With a new president on the way, we still don’t know what will happen to student debt.

Essay Question:
Why do you think the student debt crisis has gotten so extreme? How has the debt problem affected your education plans? If you were in charge, what would you do to fix the student debt crisis?

Silver Garland

The Silver Garland is an award for outstanding service. Nominees are among the most talented and gifted high school seniors in Polk County, Florida. Of much greater importance is how the nominee has used that talent and skill in service to school and community. Service is what makes a student a Silver Garland nominee. Silver Garland is sponsored as a community service by The Ledger and Lakeland Automall. Polk County high schools are invited to select seniors with records of outstanding service as Silver Garland candidates.

The Ledger will use the candidate nomination reports from the schools to compile a list of candidates from each school. That list will be sent to each school to confirm the submission of nominations. Entry forms from students who are not nominated by the schools will be discarded.
