The Zarzaur Law, P.A. Endowed Scholarship was established in the spring of 2018 by Pensacola, Florida personal injury attorney Joe Zarzaur ‘93 at his 25th class reunion. While a student at Spring Hill College, Zarzaur was a student government leader who developed a commitment to service for others. His law firm supports numerous causes in the Pensacola/Northwest Florida area seeking to provide a better life for injured victims and those killed by the negligence of others.
The goal of the Zarzaur Law, P.A. Endowed Scholarship is to inspire students to focus on traits such as decisiveness, accountability, confidence and inspiration. Zarzaur is actively contributing to help build the next great generation of leaders for the College and for the communities for which they will serve after graduation – a servant leader for today and for tomorrow.
