Leadership GrowEddie Stephens and Caryn A. Stevens of Stephens & Stevens awarded a $1,000 academic scholarship to Shefali Vansadia at the Leadership Palm Beach County GROW Graduation Ceremony.

Vansadia, currently a junior at Suncoast Community High School, is one of 50 select students participating in the 2022 Leadership Palm Beach County Grow Program. Stephens and Stevens awarded Vansadia the scholarship as a result of her essay, which conveyed the impact the GROW program has made on her and how it fostered an interest in pursuing a career in business law.

Both Eddie Stephens (2015) and Caryn Stevens (2019) are graduates of Leadership Palm Beach County with Stephens serving on its board of governors. The organization’s GROW program empowers high school juniors to understand the critical issues facing Palm Beach County while encouraging them to expand their leadership roles and build a foundation of involvement in their community. The ceremony was held at Palm Beach Atlantic University where Stephens gave the keynote address, “10 Tips to Live a Successful Life.”

“The program, LeadershipGROW, is transformative. Caryn and I went through the adult program LeadershipENGAGE, where we formed relationships that will last a lifetime, with people we probably would never have met but for leadership,” said Stephens. “The same is true for these students. Whether it’s GROW or ENGAGE, LPBC curates an incredible experience, which you go through with 49 people who you will always share this bond with, these moments in time that Leadership provides us. It is up to us to make the most of these Moments.”
