Scholarship Helps Attorney Attend ISBA Annual Meeting
If you meet Adrienne Rines, Marion, at the ISBA Annual Meeting, congratulate her on receiving the Helling Scholarship. Established through an endowment by Mr. Helling's family, the proceeds help an attorney active in the ISBA attend the meeting at no cost. Mr. Helling's family wanted to honor their father's career with this gift to ensure others could enjoy the value developed by active membership.

What has your legal career meant for you and your family? Have you considered establishing an endowment at the Foundation to foster that value in the future? It's easier than you think. Contact Chuck Dunlap or Theresa Browning to learn how establishing an endowment now will encourage the values dear to you.
