DALLAS (June 5, 2019) National law firm Wilson Elser is proud to announce that it has presented its Thomas W. Wilson Sr. Scholarship for academic year 2019−2020 to Peyton Mosman, the daughter of Valerie Mosman, an associate in the firm's Dallas, Texas, office.

Mosman will enroll as a freshman in the Honors College at the University of Arkansas with plans to major in speech pathology, in pursuit of helping children and adolescents to overcome developmental speech disorders.

"Peyton personifies the criteria established for this award," shared Daniel J. McMahon, Wilson Elser chair. "She is graduating from high school near the top of her class with a cumulative 3.9 grade point average, and is a member of the National Honor Society, Senior Executive Board and swim team. Wilson Elser is proud to contribute to Peyton's ongoing success."

In addition to her scholastic achievements, Mosman has worked with underprivileged children through her work with the National Charity League for the past six years and has served as a Sunday school teacher and camp counselor.   

The Thomas W. Wilson Sr. Scholarship, named for one of the firm's founders, was established to support the college education of selected award recipients who are children of current, full-time Wilson Elser employees. This is the 10th scholarship the program has awarded since its inception in 2010.

The scholarship provides its recipients with $10,000 per year to attend an accredited college or university.
