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.
