2024 FSTN Veteran Scholarship

Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin is thrilled to announce the 2024 edition of our FSTN Veteran Scholarship! This scholarship is in tribute to two World War II Veterans, George H. Fleschner (left) and John T. Newlin (right), fathers of partners Steve Fleschner and Tom Newlin, respectively.

Our team is honored to award a scholarship to a student who has served in the armed forces or is the child of a Veteran. Our great admiration for the bravery of those who have defended our country in the armed forces is the inspiration behind this project.
