Richard Rakes Scholarship Awarded by Roanoke Kiwanis Club
On Wednesday, May 22nd, Gentry Locke Partner Brett Marston presented the Richard Rakes Scholarship Award at the Roanoke Kiwanis Club meeting in downtown Roanoke. The recipient was Sejal Mistry, a Northside High School senior, who will attend Washington & Lee University in the Fall of 2013.
According to Marston, “The scholarship recipients this year were so impressive. Gentry Locke is very proud to be affiliated with the Kiwanis and this excellent program.”
The Roanoke Kiwanis awarded several scholarships. The Richard Rakes Scholarship is sponsored by Gentry Locke Rakes & Moore in honor of Dick Rakes, the retired name partner of the firm. Mr. Rakes is still active in Kiwanis, and as the attorneys and staff at Gentry Locke can attest, is an enthusiastic Kiwanis Pancake Breakfast ticket salesman every year.
