Ronnie M. Cole CLE Scholarship

Ronnie M. Cole

“I am very appreciative of what I have and credit a great deal of my success to the education that I received through various CLE courses. I want to be able to help attorneys who could use some assistance in getting the continued education they need. This economy has presented the profession with issues we have not seen before. Many of our colleagues are struggling. This is just one way that I can help.” – Ronnie Cole

When looking for a way to turn his idea into a reality, Ronnie Cole came to the South Carolina Bar Foundation. The Cole Scholarship Fund awards financial support to lawyer who may have trouble meeting their required CLE credits. Priority will be given to public service lawyers, in particular those who practice with Foundation grantees, past and present.
