At Scott & Wallace, we strive to improve the conditions in the communities where we live and work. It’s just the right thing to do. That is why we currently sponsor two community programs that are very important to us: The Taylor Moseley Scholarship and the Scott & Wallace School Supply Gift Program. Our community involvement is a reflection of our firm’s commitment to improving the lives of others. That is why we practice law.
Taylor Moseley Scholarship
(To apply, scroll down and fill out the form below.)
It is not the length of life that is most important, but instead the depth of life. Beautiful, both inside and out, Taylor Moseley had a zest for life that was unmatched. As those who knew her would attest, Taylor never met a stranger and was the very definition of friendly and fun-loving. She loved to dance, go to the beach, and, most of all, share the company of others. She cherished her friends and family with all her heart.
Taylor was also fiercely loyal, protective, and courageous. She could always be counted on to come to the rescue of anyone who was being mistreated, to stand by those who were deemed “unpopular”, and to lend a helping hand to those who were less fortunate.
In 2011, Taylor graduated from Lincoln High School in Tallahassee, Florida. She planned to pursue a nursing degree. However, on the morning of July 13, 2011, Taylor was tragically killed in a car accident. This tragedy shook the entire Tallahassee community. And yet, while Taylor was taken far too soon, her memory lives on. Her spirit continues to thrive in her mother, Teresa, her father Al, her step-father, Jimmy, her sister Tiffani, her grandparents, Donald and Gloria, and the hundreds of family and friends that adored her.
Our firm is honored to endow the Taylor Moseley Scholarship, which will allow a Lincoln High School senior who embodies the very qualities that made Taylor so special to continue his or her educational pursuits. We celebrate the life of Taylor Moseley and we invite all Lincoln High School seniors to submit their resume along with a short statement explaining why he or she is deserving of the Taylor Moseley Scholarship.
Scott & Wallace, along with Taylor’s family, will select the recipient each year, and the scholarship will be awarded at the annual Lincoln High Scholarship banquet. To be considered and submit your essay, please use the form below:
Scott & Wallace School Supply Gift Program
As you may or may not know, Robert Scott and Clint Wallace come from families where education is of utmost importance. In fact, Robert’s paternal grandparents dedicated their lives to education, Robert’s mother is a special education teacher, and Robert’s younger sister is a former school teacher. Similarly, Clint’s sister is a devoted special education teacher.
Given the backgrounds of our attorneys, at Scott & Wallace we believe it is our duty to support the teachers who work tirelessly to make a difference in children’s lives. Therefore, throughout the month we ask that YOU – the Facebook community – nominate special teachers in our community. On the last day of each month, we will select one teacher from your nominees and award her/him $25 as a token of our firm’s appreciation for her/his service. Our hope is that the selected teacher can use this money for school supplies or for the benefit of her/ his classes.
To nominate a teacher, please simply post the teacher’s name and school on the Scott & Wallace LLP Facebook page. If you want to say a few words about your nominee, please feel free (although this is not required). In addition to the monetary gift, we will also add the teacher’s name to our website in order to recognize her/him for her/his continued contribution to the lives of children.
Holiday Turkey Giveaway
This past holiday season, Scott & Wallace LLP gave away over 50 smoked whole turkeys to families in need. These turkeys were purchased through Connie’s Hams, a local restaurant here in Tallahassee. We thank Connie’s Hams for their help in accommodating our order so that we could provide some holiday cheer for local families.
Thanks to our staff and family, the giveaway was a great success!
