November 21, 2015

COLUMBIA, SC – Nexsen Pruet has awarded law school scholarships to three minority students who are planning careers in North and South Carolina. The 2015 NP Scholars are Christina Anderson, Tanisha Edwards, and Elliot Loncar. This is the second consecutive year that Anderson has received the scholarship.

The NP Scholars receive money for tuition through Nexsen Pruet’s Diversity Initiative, which has awarded 35 scholarships exceeding $100,000 since it began in 2008.

“Nexsen Pruet works hard to identify, engage and retain a highly-skilled and diverse workforce across the Carolinas,” says Ken Lewis, who leads the firm’s Diversity Initiative. “These scholarships help to facilitate that endeavor.”

Kenny Gardner, a litigator in the firm’s Charleston office, received a diversity scholarship in 2011.
