Genesee County Bar Foundation
John S. Beagle Scholarship

The Genesee County Bar Foundation mission is to support worthy projects which improve the administration of justice, promote the study of law and the continuing education of lawyers, educate the public about its legal rights and obligations, and maintain the honor and integrity of the profession.

The John S. Beagle Scholarship Fund, established through the GCBF, is to assist students from Genesee County with financial support while in their junior and senior years of law school.

John S. Beagle was a distinguished member of the Genesee County Bar Foundation and Genesee County Bar Association. He took great pride in the legal profession and even greater pride in his community. He once stated, “It is my belief that an individual who is interested in his or her community, and in other people, will generally make the best lawyer.”  

For John, actions truly spoke louder than words, and it is through his and his family’s generosity that this scholarship fund has been established to help defray the cost of students attending law school. John was affectionately known as “Legal Beagle,” a man of irreproachable character and good will who had a passion for justice. He was also a man who recognized the struggles of those less fortunate and did not think that economics should be a barrier to attending law school. Those fortunate to be the recipient of a John S. Beagle Scholarship will never have the opportunity to know this eminent attorney, but trust that his memory will be embraced by those he helped.
