Seth Okin Good Deeds Scholarship

As an attorney, Seth Okin wakes up every day ready to serve and defend the rights of his clients. He is dedicated to making a difference in the local Maryland communities where he lives and practices law. As an animal lover and a father, he constantly speaks out against animal cruelty and supports all efforts to improve the lives of children in his community.

However, with so many competing charities and interests in today’s world, it can be tough to decide where the most important work must be done. Should we focus on curing diseases or preventing them? Should we fund disaster relief abroad or fight homelessness at home? There are sometimes no easy or apparent answers to the big questions that underpin our good deeds and our lives of activism. It is important to keep the lines of dialogue open about what it means to serve our communities and how best to direct our efforts and resources.

Attorney Okin is proud to contribute to the national discussion on community service by renewing the Seth Okin Good Deeds Scholarship. The winner will be awarded a $1,000 scholarship that will enable them to pursue their educational goals with the ultimate purpose of creating a meaningful life of service to others.
