J. Darin Loftis Memorial Scholarships Awarded



Three J. Darin Loftis Memorial Scholarships have been awarded for the college school year 2015-2016.

Mark Thorn presented the awards this year.  During the ceremony, he shared wonderful memories of Darin as being an incredible friend, a man of integrity and a hero to all of us.

Each recipient demonstrated the traits of the type of scholar and leader Darin set as an example to follow.  We congratulate each of them.

Award recipients:

  • Logan Fry
  • Audree Harper
  • Andrea McCormack

This brings the total number of scholarship recipients to five since the awards began two years ago.   The Scholarship Board will continue to stay in contact with recipients to learn of their individual journeys and overall impact on the world around them.
