Fraser Stryker PC LLO recog­nized two diversity scholars at a luncheon last Thursday as part of its program to support college-bound students interested in a legal career.

The two scholars – Omaha Northwest High School graduate Alejandra Arellano and Papillion-La Vista High School graduate Saray Bedoya – each received a $2,500 scholarship and a paid sum­mer internship at the firm.

The scholarships are renewable at the discretion of the firm’s diver­sity scholarship committee, accord­ing to the program website. The money can be used for tuition, fees, books and supplies.

Stephen M. Bruckner, a partner in the firm, said diversity is a core value for Fraser Stryker.

“A talented, diverse work force is important to our firm’s culture, to our clients, and to the broader community,” Bruckner said. “We launched this program and have continued it because we want to help establish a pipeline of talent for the legal profession, and it sim­ply takes financial backing to make this happen.

“We have been thrilled with the talent and strong character of our diversity scholars, and we believe they will contribute in our profes­sion and others. Many of our past scholars already are doing so.”

Scholars in the program must be interested in pursuing a career in the law, and their family must fall under certain income requirements. The scholars will gain insight into the profession as paid summer em­ployees. 

Arellano plans to attend the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and has an interest in accounting. Bedoya plans to attend Stanford University and has an interest in public policy.
