Proud to Support Future Rochester Legal Professionals with Scholarship Opportunities
As part of the Rochester legal community for over 25 years, Segar & Sciortino takes pride in giving back through the donation of multiple scholarships each year.
For the past three years, Segar & Sciortino has provided scholarships to students in four Rochester area high schools; Aquinas Institute, Brighton, Honeoye-Falls Lima and Palmyra-Macedon. The Segar & Sciortino Award for Integrity is given to a graduating senior who is known by teachers, faculty and staff for displaying good judgement and having high moral character. In addition, the student must make honest and ethical decisions while also displaying leadership qualities.
In 2017 the Segar & Sciortino Award for Integrity was given to: Eric Davis (HFL), Emma Jackson (Pal-Mac) and Sunjae Park (Aquinas). In 2018, Kaitlyn Waite (Pal-Mac), Grace Crowe (Brighton), Ayanna Sampson (Aquinas) and Tyler Selke (HFL) all received the award. In June 2019, Arianna Pitcher (Aquinas), Samuel O’Connor (Brighton), Tristan Gellatly (Pal-Mac) and Quinn Ackerman (HFL) were recognized.
In January of 2019, Segar & Sciortino extended their scholarship offerings to college students as they partnered with Monroe Community College. The firm provides two scholarships a year to students in the Paralegal Studies Program. The Segar & Sciortino Scholarship in Paralegal Studies is given to students with a 3.0 or higher GPA in the program who have completed a minimum of 11 credits and have written an essay explaining the importance of the Paralegal Program to their future. Jason Wainer and Lorraine Ventura were the first recipients of the award and were recognized in the Spring of 2019.
Founder and Managing Partner Stephen Segar said, “As a firm we are proud to give back to the Rochester community by providing scholarship opportunities to local high school and college students. This is our way of supporting the future of Rochester and the legal profession.”
