McCarthy, Esquire, Craig M. Memorial Scholarship
The Craig M. McCarthy, Esquire, Memorial Scholarship is established in memory of Craig M. McCarthy, Esquire. Craig was a very special husband, son, and friend. He will always be remembered for his positive and caring attitude and his dedication to serving the legal needs of the poor and less fortunate. Graduating summa cum laude and second in his class from The University of Akron School of Law, Craig went on to work for the Akron City Prosecutor's Office and the Ninth District Court of Appeals in the State of Ohio.
As a living legacy in celebration and remembrance of Craig's life, The Craig M. McCarthy, Esquire, Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established. The purpose of the scholarship fund is to provide an annual academic scholarship in the area of public interest law to a law student attending classes at The University of Akron School of Law. Preference in awarding the scholarship will be based on merit, demonstrated financial need, the geographic location of Tuscarawas and Stark counties, and a short personal statement that conveys why the student is interested in pursuing a career in public interest law.
Selection of the annual Craig M. McCarthy, Esquire, Memorial Scholar will be determined by a two-step process, until such time Craig's mother, father, widow, and other immediate family members are unable to participate. The process will begin with The University of Akron School of Law Scholarship Committee initiating a call for nominations and selecting the top candidates for final consideration by Timothy McCarthy, Cristene McCarthy, Kelly McCarthy, Jeffrey Timmons, and others they choose to serve on the McCarthy family award committee.
