Lauren established the Ben Malek Memorial Scholarship in 2005 to honor this past employee who gave so much of himself to the Company and his community. In 2006, the Phyllis Milne Memorial Scholarship was added to honor the lasting impression Mrs. Milne made on countless lives throughout the company. The intention of these scholarships is to help further the educational goals of students who are committed to working and studying hard to achieve their goals.

The Scholarship fund is $2,000 and will be awarded to two honorable recipients for $1,000 each. The Scholarship awards will be made by the Scholarship Selection Committee, based solely on the content of the application.

The Scholarship Selection Committee will base their decisions on the following items:

  • Eligibility and Qualifications (as explained on the attached list)
  • Description of Personal and Career Goals
  • Explanation of “Why You Should Be Our Choice for the Scholarship”

The deadline for sending in applications is Friday, June 19, 2009. The decision will be made by Friday, July 17, 2009. All applicants will be notified by letter.

An official application is attached along with the “Eligibility and Qualifications.”
