Lucille began her teaching career as a kindergarten teacher and later became the principal of an elementary school near the city she lived in. The impact and reach she had with her students and those that worked with her was powerful.
In addition to her impact on the school district, Lucille was a dedicated grandmother, always inspiring her grandchildren to be good people and get an education. She didn’t care what it was in, just as long as they were passionate about it.

While not required, preference will be given to students majoring in education.

Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
