The Lou Anna Rollins Scholarship is a scholarship honoring the late Lou Anna Rollins. She was an inspiration and jewel to her community. She was a woman of great dignity, stature, and of virtue. She was a woman who worked hard all her life, making a home for her family and committed to the work of her church. Hard work was her example and gift to us all, even going without to make ends meet for her family. Her trust in God was her strength. So with this scholarship we honor her by giving back to high school students going to college who represent that example.
