Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick Announces Chandler Cole as Recipient of 2022 Law School Scholarship for Veterans
PROVIDENCE, RI, August 31, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ — Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD is delighted to announce Chandler Cole as the winner of the 2022 Law School Scholarship for Veterans. This scholarship is awarded annually to one deserving veteran from any branch of the United States military who is pursuing a degree in law.
When she started at the United States Military Academy at West Point, Chandler Cole never anticipated the path her military career would take, nor the role she would play as a leader in a national effort to help evacuate hundreds of people from Afghanistan before the withdrawal of American troops from the country. In her scholarship essay, Ms. Cole explains that while her younger self would have shied away from the spotlight and hesitated to serve as the face of such an important operation, the challenges she faced as a woman in a male-dominated environment ultimately prepared her for this leadership position.
“My experience built resilience in the face of adversity and made empathy a mainstay in my leadership style,” Cole reflects. “My time in the Army informed my personal goals and aspirations, forming a desire to create change for the disadvantaged and forging a way ahead for those who “put their faith in the legal system.”
Despite her personal victories, and that fact that she and her team successfully facilitated a major, global rescue operation, Cole was left with a feeling that her work was not yet complete. As such, Ms. Cole is pursuing a career in law so that she may continue serving veterans and soldiers in any way she can.
CCK is proud to support Ms. Cole and wishes her the best of luck as she begins her first year at Duke University School of Law.
