TALLAHASSEE — Tallahassee attorney Sean Pittman, a 1994 graduate of Florida State University College of Law, has pledged $100,000 to endow the Sean Pittman Scholarship at the law school. The income from this endowment will be used to award at least one scholarship each year to a minority student who is interested in pursuing a career as a governmental lawyer. The gift to endowment will be eligible for a 50 percent match from the state of Florida. The state match will be added to the permanent endowment, creating a total endowment of $150,000.

“I am happy and fortunate to be able to support my alma mater,” said Pittman. “I appreciate the College of Law very much and I am hopeful that this gift will assist students who will use their legal education for public service. Our personal investments in education are vital to the future of our communities and our nation.”

“We are extremely grateful for this endowment and also for Sean’s support of Student Affairs and the Seminole Boosters,” said Dean Don Weidner. “He is an all-around champion of Florida State University.”

Pittman is the founder and president of the Pittman Law Group, a corporate law and governmental consulting firm with offices in Tallahassee and Riviera Beach, Florida.
