Meet the 2023 LAA Scholarship Recipients
The mission of the Lasso Alumni Association is to support, promote and preserve the rich history and traditions of the Lassos. One of the ways we support the Lassos is to provide scholarships to graduating seniors. Thank you to our generous members and community for providing donations and support to make this happen. Each scholarship recipient received $2500 this year.
The LAA is proud to introduce you to our very talented 2022-2023 scholarship recipients.
