With a heavy heart, the Phil Alpha Delta International Foundation announces the Christopher Byrd Memorial Scholarship. This Scholarship will be awarded annually to a Phi Alpha Delta law student that demonstrates a commitment to public interest law, with an emphasis on environmental protection. The Foundation has created this Scholarship in memory of P.A.D. Brother, Christopher Byrd.
Christopher Byrd was an officer of the Fleming Chapter at Nova Southeastern University, and later served as Assistant District Justice for District 26 (Central and North Florida). He continued to be involved with law students and alumni even after his tenure as Assistant District Justice ended. Professionally, Christopher pursued his passion to protect the Florida’s precious environment, serving as an attorney for the Florida Department for Environmental Protection and then founder of The Byrd Law Group. Christopher passed away in September at the age of 34. During his life, Christopher’s larger than life personality touched and inspired all those he encountered.
P.A.D. International Fund is a charitable organization qualified under the provisions of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
