The DeMayo Law Offices’ annual Michael A. DeMayo Scholarship program offers seniors a chance to win a scholarship toward their college education. The firm will be awarding a total of $37,500 in college scholarships to 15 high school seniors who live in and attend schools in counties served by the firm, including Scotland County.
