Two Graduating Seniors Awarded the Langdale Legal College Scholarship
On June 28, 2016, Pope Langdale of Langdale Vallotton, LLP awarded the Langdale Legal College Scholarship to two graduating seniors, Motunvolaolu “Mo” Asebiomo from Valdosta High School and Kellsie A. Davis from Lowndes County High School.
The Langdale Legal College Scholarship is awarded each year to graduating seniors who have excelled academically and who have shown a genuine interest in pursuing a legal education after high school. To be eligible, a student must have demonstrated plans to attend an accredited four year college. The scholarship is intended to further the education of deserving students with the hope that one day they will return to our community to serve our citizenry in a field related to the law. Each student will receive $1,000 to be applied toward his or her costs of attending college.
In September, Mo Asebiomo will attend Stanford University. Her major is undeclared. She states, “I intend to explore the academic offerings in my freshmen year and choose what is in my best interest for a future in law. Stanford doesn’t require students to declare until their sophomore year.”
Kellsie A. Davis
In August, Kellsie A. Davis will attend University of Georgia and plans to major in Political Science. Langdale Vallotton, LLP congratulates Mo and Kellsie and wishes them the very best of luck.

This listing takes into account a lawyer who may or may not serve powerful clients but who shapes public or private policies— sometimes behind the scenes— in the interconnected and fascinating world of the law, business and politics.
