2022 Winner: Jordan Losack
Biography: Jordan Losack attends Texas A&M University, majoring in Animal Science. She grew up in Grapevine, Texas. During high school, Jordan found her passion for using her love and knowledge of animals to help people in need. She began teaching horse therapy lessons to children with intellectual disabilities and special needs, working at a local vet, and raising and training Guide Dogs for the Blind. “Raising guide dogs has truly been a life changer for me.” The hard work put into preparing dogs to one day be the eyes of someone blind or visually impaired goes far beyond getting to go in public with a cute puppy. It takes a village to raise these dogs. She says, “I am so beyond thankful for everyone that has helped me along the way.”
Our team at Aulsbrook Truck and Car Accident Lawyers is thankful too, and we appreciate all you do in our community!
In Jordan’s Own Words: I am so grateful to be chosen for this scholarship! What an amazing opportunity, hearing about Aulsbrook Law Firm’s mission for advocating animal welfare made me so happy, knowing that there are people eager to protect and promote the well-being of animals big and small just like me!
2021 Winner: Amanda Karras
Biography: Amanda Karras is originally from Chicago and moved to Texas when she was seven years old. Amanda was homeschooled until eighth grade, when she moved and started at Lovejoy ISD. Throughout her whole life, Amanda and her family have always had at least one and usually more rescue dogs in their home, leading them to adopt rats, and eventually began fostering animals.
In Amanda’s Own Words: Thank you so much for granting me this incredible opportunity; I feel truly honored. Winning this scholarship has absolutely made my Thanksgiving break all the more special.
2020 Winner: Hailey Weisman
Biography: My name is Hailey Weisman and I am a senior at Dripping Springs High School in Dripping Springs Texas. I grew up in suburban Ohio and moved to Texas August 2019! I live with my mom and step-dad in Texas, while my dad is in Ohio. I have an older brother that is currently a Junior at Ohio State University in Columbus, OH. I started riding horses around the age of 9 and my love has just grown from there! I mainly grew up around rescue animals so when it came time to look for a horse I knew the path I wanted to take! I am involved in 4-H and actively competing in FFA, where I show goats as well! I will be attending Tarleton State University in Stephenville Texas in the fall of 2021. While at Tarleton, I will be in the College of Agriculture with a major of Land/ Ranch Management with an Equine Science Certificate.
In Hailey’s Own Words: “When I heard that I won the scholarship I was overjoyed and overcome with emotion. I have been working very diligently for the past year getting ready for college and this scholarship just shows that hard work pays off!!”
2019 Winner: Sarah Aminzadeh
Biography: I grew up in Plano, Texas, with my parents and two brothers. I am a triplet! All three of us went to Collin College for the first few semesters and then transferred to the University of North Texas. I graduated with a degree in Psychology knowing it would be great knowledge to have going into law school. I am currently a 2L at UNT Dallas College of Law. Law school has been an incredible journey, and UNT Dallas has been nothing but supportive of my passion for animals. I always knew I wanted to go to law school, but I could never figure out why. It wasn’t until I got involved in the Animal Legal Defense Fund that I found my reason!
In her own words: I am so blessed and honored to be awarded this scholarship! Funnily enough, despite my school’s regular Scholarship Opportunities emails, it wasn’t until five classmates informed me of this scholarship that I decided to look into it. I must have (inadvertently) made it obvious that I am a big animal lover and advocate! It is so reassuring to know that law firms like Aulsbrook Law Firm support animal rescue organizations. It is this kind of support that our community needs! It truly is such an honor to be awarded this scholarship. I cannot thank Aulsbrook Law Firm enough!
