Students and Faculty of Local School Celebrate their "Adoption" with White and Williams

J.R. Masterman School (Philadelphia, PA)
March 2, 2012

On Friday, March 2, 2012, Guy Cellucci, Managing Partner of White and Williams, along with lawyers and staff presented a $10,000 check for staff grants - the first of many donations of cash, resources and employee time from the firm - during an assembly, marking the formal adoption of J.R. Masterman School. The check allows faculty members to purchase supplies needed to teach their students.

In addition to the check presentation, members of the school's choir, Sweet Sixteen sang songs. The school's principal, Marjorie Neff, students and President of Home School, Angelina Williams, surprised the firm with a celebratory balloon drop to thank the firm for its support.

White and Williams adopted the school as a way of giving back and investing in its community. Through this "adoption,” the firm and its employees look to help the 1,150 students currently enrolled at the school. During a time when Masterman is facing deep budget cuts, the firm looks to provide tools and resources needed to ensure Masterman continues to succeed and serve as a model of success.

Masterman’s proximity being only eight blocks away will allow lawyers and staff to get personally involved with the school, partaking in activities like the school’s annual “Clean up Day,” Mentoring Day and Career Day

The firm will also make three college scholarships available for three students – one minority, one female and one commendable student.
