For the fifth year in a row, Butler Weihmuller Katz Craig has celebrated the achievements of high school seniors across the country through our CTRL Your Future Laptop Contest. This year’s laptop contest however, has been especially meaningful in the need and impact it has had on the recipients. In a year that is typically marked by milestones, like prom, graduation and college acceptance letters, high school seniors have had to adapt to the rapidly changing circumstances of COVID-19. Completing their last high school courses and celebrating each significant mark into adulthood, was done at home, virtually, among their families. With the uncertainty of when schools will resume back to normal, many of these students will begin the first year of their college careers online. These laptops will serve as more than a study tool for these seniors. They will also serve as a means to communicate and stay connected with the people and communities they are a part of.
We wish to extend a special Congratulations to our 2020 CTRL Your Future Winners! Read below for more information on the deserving Seniors who were awarded laptops.
Butler’s annual CTRL Your Future essay contest was created by the Firm’s Community Service Committee to recognize deserving high school seniors who have exhibited commitment to their academics. The winners in each city received a brand-new laptop with a full Microsoft Office Suite installed to assist them in their studies in the fall.
The Community Service Committee (CSC) is committed to upholding the Service Principal to the highest standard. Creating events like the CTRL Your Future laptop donation and the Butler 4 Books program, the CSC members are growing their outreach to serve our community. The members of the committee are David Maldoff, Peter Vogt, George McMullin, Eric Zivitz, Rich Gable, Dean Rauchwerger and Brittney Bagiardi.
