POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – South Florida community association law firm Kaye & Bender P.L. has named Jonathan Picard, a second year student at the Shepard Broad Law Center at Nova Southeastern University and resident of West Palm Beach, the recipient of the 2011-2012 Kaye & Bender Scholarship.

“The quality of the applicants impressed us and made it a difficult decision to select this year’s scholarship recipient.  However, in his application submission, Jonathan clearly demonstrated an insightful understanding of the essay topic and made a persuasive presentation,” said Robert Kaye, managing member of Kaye & Bender.  “His strong assessment and passion for the topic ultimately swayed our decision.”
