Chavez stressed values of hard work and adaptivity in winning essay; Plans to study business in undergraduate before pursuing a path to law school

PROVIDENCE, RI, March 07, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ — Nationally recognized law firm Chisholm Chisholm & Kilpatrick LTD (CCK) announced today that Isaiah Chavez, of El Paso, TX, is the recipient of the Child of an American Veteran Scholarship for 2023. This scholarship is awarded annually to one deserving child of a veteran of any branch of the United States military.

From an early age, Chavez recognized that the military, in particular the Marine Corps, played an integral role in his life. Chavez’s father left for the Marine Corps when he was only six months old, during the height of the war in Iraq.

“Isiah Chavez exemplifies the character and values of a future leader, and we are proud to recognize him as this year’s honored CCK Child of an American Veteran Scholar,” said CCK Founding Partner Robert Chisholm “We take pride in our work with U.S. Veterans and Military Families, and we are honored to have an opportunity to show our support for their service through this scholarship program.”

In his application essay, Chavez attributes much of his “personal character” to his father and the way his “Marine Corps training and molding” carried over into family life. He recalls how his dad focused on raising children who “understood the importance of time and who were respectful to everyone and everything.” From his father Chavez also learned the value of hard work and adaptivity, as well as gained an understanding of the impacts of his actions (and inactions).

“I think in the end he is a better man and better father because of his Marine Corps service. I am a better person because of my father and his Marine Corps influence,” Chavez wrote.

Chavez plans to pursue his bachelor’s degree in Business Management before pursuing his ultimate dream of becoming a lawyer.
