FIVE PALM BEACH COUNTY students will find it financially easier to attend college this fall thanks to scholarships provided by the Palm Beach County Bar Association’s North County Section. The students will each receive $1,000, which will be used toward their tuition and books at Palm Beach Community College. “Every year, families with college-aged children are faced with having to pay more and more for higher education,” said Bill Fleck, president of the North County Section. “It’s our hope that these families will now have less to worry about when it comes to the financial stress of sending their children to college.” All of the students are enrolled in technical degree programs at the Palm Beach Gardens Campus of Palm Beach Community College and are seeking degrees in radiography or respiratory care. Included are Edward Willey, dean of academic affairs; PBCB board members Colleen Nelson, Jerry Beer, and Michael Slavin; Bill Fleck, president of the North County Section; board member Scott Zappolo; and scholarship winners Jessica Smith, Guerline Edwards, Amanda Drake, Crystal Felch, Ireze Stark; and Nancy Weissman, associate professor, respiratory care. The association plans to continue its fundraising efforts in order to endow the scholarship. For more information call the association at (561) 687-2800.

MAY WAS A BIG MONTH for the Barkdull family. Retired Third DCA Judge Thomas H. Barkdull, Jr., and his son, 15th Circuit Judge Thomas H. Barkdull III, both received judicial excellence awards within days of each other. The Dade County Bar presented Judge Barkdull, Jr., with its Allan R. Schwartz Judicial Excellence Award May 15 “in recognition of his devoted and exemplary service as the heart of the Third District Court of Appeal.” Three days later, Judge Barkdull III, right, was surprised to learn the Palm Beach County Bar’s North County Section selected him as its Jurist of the Year. “It was certainly a shock to both of us,” the elder Judge Barkdull said.

ROSENTHAL & LEVY’S Ethan F. Kominsky recently served as team captain for the “Taking Great Strides to Cure Cystic Fibrosis” Jupiter walk. Under Kominsky’s direction the Rosenthal & Levy team raised over $3,000. The firms also sponsored the fundraising Kick-Off Breakfast. “Cystic Fibrosis is a disease that impacts children and their families,” Kominsky said. “Raising money to further the efforts of finding a cure is the least that we as caring individuals can do.” Beginning at Carlin Park, the Great Strides walk took place along A1A with its scenic views of Jupiter Beach and the Atlantic Ocean. The Jupiter event raised over $110,000 with approximately 420 participating walkers and attendees. Now in its 18th year, the Great Strides walk takes place at hundreds of sites throughout the United States. The 2006 nationwide fundraising goal is $32.5 million. The funds will support vital cystic fibrosis research, education, and care programs.
