DoGood-ers in the Frederick community will be honored at an awards reception to be held at the Arc at Market Street, on Thursday, October 11, 2018. Jeremy Scholtes, attorney with Miles & Stockbridge and 2017 Military DoGood-er receipient, will be our keynote speaker.
Jeremy Scholtes is an attorney with Miles & Stockbridge and he serves as a U.S. Army Reserve Judge Advocate General. His firsthand experience as a combat veteran led to his involvement with Platoon 22, a non-profit that increases awareness of veteran suicides and provides mental health educational and support resources to veterans and their families.
Since 2016, Jeremy and other Miles & Stockbridge team members have provided general legal support to the organization on a pro-bono basis.
For his pro bono work with Platoon 22, his employer, Miles & Stockbridge, recognized Jeremy with the Firm's Pro Bono Advocate Award in 2016. This award exemplifies the firm’s strong tradition of public service and giving back. And then last year, he was honored with the 2017 Military DoGood-er Award.
Jeremy is a member of and volunteers for, the Rotary Club of Carroll Creek and the Frederick County Chamber of Commerce. He sits on the Board of Directors for the Downtown Frederick Partnership and provides counsel and support, for several other community organizations. He provides free seminars to the business community via the Chamber, and is a 2016 graduate of the Chamber's "Leadership Frederick County" program, where he served as the class graduation speaker delivering a most inspiring speech.
In addition to his work with Platoon 22, he brings awareness to the sacrifice of the American military through his involvement with wear blue: run to remember, a national non-profit that encourages people to train for and participate in endurance events in honor of fallen soldiers. With commitment, inspiration and grace, Jeremy has served his clients, his country and his community.
Jeremy, his wife Meg and their three children have resided in Frederick County since 2012.
We are honored to have him as our keynote speaker for our third annual DoGood-er Awards event.
