2020 Winner: Shaely Cannon
Biography: My name is Shaely Cannon, and I am originally from McDonough, Georgia. I moved to Toccoa, Georgia during my sophomore year of high school, and I graduated from Habersham Central High School third in my class of 455 students. I am a National AP Scholar as well as AP Capstone Diploma recipient, and I was involved in many organizations in high school including Chorus, Mock Trial, Youth Leadership Habersham, South State Bank Student Advisory Board, Future Business Leaders of America, BETA Club, Mu Alpha Theta, and the Academic Bowl Team. I am currently attending the University of Georgia, and I am a first-year honors program student. My major is Biological Sciences on a Pre-Optometry pathway. I hope to get involved in research opportunities as well as campus organizations such as Mock Trial and Student Government. I plan to graduate from the University of Georgia with honors and continue my education in a graduate program at a school of optometry.
Reaction statement: I am very honored to be receiving the Schlanger Law Group Consumer Law Scholarship for Undergrads, and I know it will be a significant help as I continue my education at the University of Georgia. I will be able to apply this scholarship during my undergraduate studies allowing me to save money for graduate school in the future. When I discovered that I earned this scholarship, I was immediately excited and surprised. I knew I had put a lot of work into my essay, but I genuinely was not expecting to win. I am very appreciative of this scholarship, Attorney Daniel Schlanger, and the Schlanger Law Group for assisting me in my education and helping me to accomplish my goals for the future.
