Chaffin Luhana LLP and the Chaffin Luhana Foundation, in partnership with Pittsburgh Steelers Running Back Najee Harris, are excited to announce a new scholarship award for one deserving high school student in the greater Pittsburgh community.
The “Najee Harris Student of the Year Award” will be given to one student who exemplifies the Doing Good by Doing Right™ values, including the achievement of excellence, making an impact in the school and/or community, displaying a team mindset, and demonstrating compassion toward others.
“When we founded our firm and foundation, we did so on the principle of ‘Doing Good by Doing Right,’ meaning that we seek to do good for our clients and the community by doing the right thing at all times. We believe a large part of that effort is recognizing and encouraging our younger generation to reach their highest potential,” said Eric Chaffin, Managing Partner of Chaffin Luhana.
“This season, I’m teaming up with Chaffin Luhana to award a deserving student with a scholarship and a pep rally with me at their school. I want to shine some light on students in Pittsburgh who make a difference in their schools and communities and are doing good by doing right,” said Harris.
To be considered, the student needs to be nominated by friends, family, or anyone in the community who wants to share how that student is demonstrating a positive impact in their school and community.
“For every touchdown I score,” Harris said, “we’re putting $500 toward the scholarship for up to $10,000. I’m aiming for at least 20 touchdowns this year, so that could mean a $10,000 scholarship award!”

The scholarship also includes a personal visit from Harris to the student’s school for a special pep rally. “Don’t forget,” Harris said. “If you win, I’m coming to hang with you at your school!”
Chaffin Luhana has long believed in giving back to the community through charitable contributions, advancing scientific research, working to combat distracted driving, and providing scholarships to encourage high school students who are making a difference.
“We’re excited to be working with Najee to offer this award and scholarship to a deserving student,” said Roopal Luhana, Partner of Chaffin Luhana. “We love hearing about these amazing students who are stepping up to take positive action in their schools and communities. Recognizing them is one small way we hope to impact the future of Pittsburgh and the surrounding area. We all came from humble roots, and we understand how important it is for people to rally together to support the next generation as they seek to make our world an even better place.”
Chaffin Luhana will host a pep rally with Najee Harris at the winner’s school in the Spring of 2023 to award the winner of the Student of the Year Award. The event promises to be exciting and inspiring for all involved!
