SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - The Eichholz Law Firm presented its fourth annual scholarship for continuing education on Monday.
Natreece Brooks, a senior at Windsor Forest High School, was this year's honoree, receiving $1,500 to help her attend the University of Georgia. She tells us the scholarship process taught her another lesson.
"It tells me 'good job.' Hard work does pay off, mainly. Don't give up, keep applying for your scholarships, keep writing to people, answering their essay questions,' Brooks said.
In addition to her 4.0 GPA, Natreece is a volunteer in the community, a Varsity basketball player, President of the National Honor Society, and a participant in Dawn's Daughter Leadership Academy.
