Farrow-Gillespie Heath Witter LLP proudly announces the formation of The Liza Farrow-Gillespie Intrepid Young Woman Scholarship.
Our law firm is honored to confirm that Jim Thompson, long-time friend and client of Liza Farrow-Gillespie, is the lead donor to the Liza Farrow-Gillespie Intrepid Young Woman Scholarship to be awarded annually to a young woman graduate of the Dallas ISD Barefoot Sanders Law Magnet. The Scholarship is given in Liza’s honor to a girl who embodies Liza’s “do anything, go anywhere” spirit. The donor intends this scholarship to be a fair wind in the recipient’s sail and to encourage the young woman to emulate Liza’s amazing life. Liza Farrow-Gillespie lived life fearlessly. She serenaded Hollywood as a professional musician and singer. She toured with bands and recording artists. She circumnavigated the globe on a 54-foot sailboat and triumphed over storms, whether they be monsoons or actual pirates. She published a book that archives her infinite heart and humor. She clerked with the late Honorable Barefoot Sanders and at 54 years old, Liza co-founded one of the only woman-owned law firms in Dallas, proving anything can be done no matter the age. She fought cancer. She knocked it out. It came back for a round two. Even in loss, Liza remained fearless. We want the scholarship winners to voyage on, as Liza did. Tax-deductible donations for this scholarship can be made to the Dallas Education Foundation: https://futureofdallas.org/donate/. In the Additional Information Comments section, enter “For Liza”.
