This year I had the privilege to read Mr. Richard Bergholtz’s work, get to know a little about his passion for music, and to award him Second Place in our Brooks Law Group Spring Scholarship Contest! Richard is about to make a big change in his life – he will be moving from Mount Dora to Tallahassee! Richard is planning on majoring in commercial music and minoring in engineering with hopes to record music with other artists.
