Baldwin Wallace University graduate student and Cleveland school teacher Heather Marzenki has been named "the clear winner" of The Reeves Law Group annual academic scholarship contest and was awarded $1,000 in scholarship money.

Applicants were challenged to answer questions about what they have done to help lift people up in their communities. Marzenki, who is pursuing a Master's Degree in Education and is teaching at the St. Rocco School in Cleveland, described the challenges and successes of teaching students living at or near the poverty line.

"Heather's application was sincere, heartfelt, and very deserving," said Robert Reeves, founder of the  the southern California-based law firm. "Not only does she run multiple fundraisers throughout the year...but she collects used clothing and shoes outside of school to assist these same families."
