With those qualities in mind, TLCA will award at least 1 “scholarship/grant” annually (dependent on fund availability). Children and Grandchildren of TLCA members can apply if they are between 15 and 22 years old. The Live Like Lash award can be used for the following purposes only:
- High School
- Technical School
The winners will be chosen by an appointed committee of TLCA member and the family of Lash Lacoste. Included on the committee will be:
- Chairperson – A member of the TLCA executive Board of Directors
- Representative from CottonLand Cruisers
- Treasurer of TLCA
- Amanda Lacoste and/or Jace Lacoste – Amanda and Jace will not vote, but will be able to review submissions, make recommendations, and help to guide the committee in the selection process.
The award will be announced at the Southern Cruiser Crawl each year, if that event is active. In the event the SCC is no longer an active event, all efforts will be made to award it in person. If is not possible to present the award in person, then a video conference will be conducted and recorded. Following the presentation of the award, it will be announced in a media release and on the TLCA website.
