2020 Scholarship Winner: Courtney Smith

I am honored to be chosen as the recipient of the Pursuing a Positive Impact Scholarship from Commonwealth Law Group. As a result of this scholarship award, I am able to progress in my education towards a Doctorate in Pharmacy. I will be entering my third year of instruction this fall at Ohio Northern University and consider myself extremely fortunate to be able to embark in this academic journey. The firm’s investment in my education and future enables me to focus on my studies and further immerse myself in the campus community. This semester, I am looking forward to researching and writing for the Pharmacy and Wellness Review as well as aiding students as an on-campus tutor and resident assistant. I will also have the opportunity to maintain involvement and volunteerism in organizations throughout the college.

Upon learning that I have been selected as the recipient of the Pursuing a Positive Impact Scholarship, I feel motivated to ensure that I am engaged with my community and can best serve as a healthcare professional and advocate for my future patients. During my family’s deepest hardships, my mother demonstrated resilience and perseverance, encouraging my sisters and I to conquer challenges but also to provide relief where possible. I feel empowered to share this message to others as her mantra promoted inclusivity and togetherness which I attempt to display in every setting. Furthermore, I am driven by the sense of service embodied by Commonwealth Law Group and hope that I can additionally emulate similar ideals in my career.

My inspiration to return to my community stems from my father’s battle with Crohn’s Disease and the raw generosity that my family was exposed to as a result. This, too, serves as my motivation to pursue a career in medicine. After completing my degree, I hope to work as a
pharmacist in the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs for their core values of service and care align with my goals to provide the highest degree of patient care whilst remaining accessible in the community. Because of the support from Commonwealth Law Group, I can continue my professional development as a student pharmacist and progress toward achieving my goals. Thank you for providing me with this opportunity and aiding in my education.
