Each year my law firm, De Caro & Kaplen offers a scholarship for a student who is a survivor of traumatic brain injury and is pursuing a college education.
As advocates for people with a brain injury and their families, we have witnessed the incredible hardships they have endured and the dedication and determination necessary to help rebuild their lives.
We want to recognize an individual’s hard work and perseverance in living with a brain injury and pursuing his/her dreams and goals.
This scholarship is an important reminder that every person who has sustained a traumatic brain injury is an individual, not just a statistic.
Today many industries place profits over safety, such as the trucking and motor vehicle industry, construction industry, negligent doctors, and sports organizations, both professional and school or community based. We lose sight of the full impact these injuries have on both the individual and family. A life can be changed in an instant.
I am pleased to introduce to you our 2021 scholarship winner, Devin Valencia from the State of Nevada.
We hope that that our scholarship will assist Devin in completing her education and pursuing her dreams.
Please join me for a short interview with Devin.
