Abrahamson & Uiterwyk is proud to announce the winner of its “Distracted Driving Family Plan” Scholarship Essay Contest. Melanie Mooney, a senior at Munster High School in Munster, Indiana will receive $1,500 in scholarship funds for her essay on detailing her plan for how to remain focused on the road while driving.
“Ms. Mooney’s essay truly encapsulated the spirit of the scholarship contest,” Attorney Abrahamson said, “While we received many other excellent submissions, hers stood high above the rest.”

I WILL NOT text, call, or be on the weB

I WILL focus on the now and not a later agendA
