Best Of The Best Scholarship Program

Since 1994, the Pennsylvania law firm of Cohen, Feeley, Altemose & Rambo has been honoring outstanding high school seniors in the Lehigh Valley, Hunterdon and Warren counties through The Best of the Best Awards program.

The program seeks to recognize the accomplishments of outstanding seniors who have distinguished themselves through superior academics, extra-curricular activities and community service as well as considering any unique hardship that a student may have overcome. Each of the schools solicits applications from those students whom they feel meet the criteria and submits the applications to our law firm for review by our scholarship committee. The program also includes a community service award to recognize two students who have participated in exemplary community service throughout their high school years.

After each application has been reviewed and a student is chosen from each of the high schools, the committee chooses one male and one female student from the schools as a finalist and one male and female winner from Pennsylvania and New Jersey, and honors them as The Best of the Best at our annual awards breakfast in May.

We are pleased to announce the 2016 winners from each of the participating high schools:
