Sutherland Attorneys, Staff Celebrate a Successful School Year with Everybody Wins! Phil Gura Receives Special Recognition Award

May 29, 2002

ATLANTA (May 29, 2002) – Sutherland attorneys and staff recently attended a luncheon at Lakewood Heights Elementary School celebrating a successful year of partnership with Everybody Wins!, a privately-funded national non-profit organization devoted to increasing children's prospects for success in school and in life through one-to-one reading experiences.

More than 20 Sutherland attorneys and administrative staff members participated in the program and spent their lunch hours reading to fourth graders at Lakewood Elementary each week throughout the academic year. This was the first academic year Sutherland has been a corporate sponsor of Everybody Wins!

Sutherland partner Phil Gura received special recognition at the luncheon for his additional contributions of time and other resources in making the program work for his student, as well as others in the program.

"The mentoring Phil provided to his reading partner was so attentive," said Terri Beck, Executive Director of the program in Atlanta. "Phil exemplifies exactly we want in a volunteer."

"Participating in the Everybody Wins! program gave me a chance to help a child succeed by doing something I love: reading. You would be amazed at the difference you can make in a child's life by spending a lunch hour getting lost in a story together," said Gura. "Through the Everybody Wins! program, kids get "one-on-one" attention which can help turn hesitant readers into confident, fluent readers. There's no greater gift you can give to a struggling student."
