Jordan Manahan, a law student from Chambersburg, is the recipient of this year’s Faerie L. Angle Memorial Scholarship.
The $45,000 scholarship was announced this week by The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (TFEC).
The Faerie L. Angle Memorial Scholarship Fund has awarded over $170,000 since 2017 to support young persons from Franklin County entering their first, second, or third year of a J.D. Program with the intent to become a lawyer after graduation.
Manahan is in his first year of law school at Florida State University College of Law in Tallahassee, Florida. For the past four years, beginning when he was a high school student, Jordan interned at the law office of Dana Hadigian in Hagerstown, Md.
Jordan will focus on environmental law, with hopes of integrating public education of the law into his legal career.
Faerie L. Angle was the widow of Roy S.F. Angle, Attorney-at-Law. Her Last Will and Testament provided for the creation of a Law School Educational Trust Fund, which provides scholarships for young persons from Franklin County, Pa., studying to be lawyers.
TFEC celebrates Ms. Angle’s generosity and strives to be good stewards of her legacy.
