The JSL Endowment was established in 1991 by Diane Lindamood in memory of her son, Stephen, who was in a tragic car accident in the Winter of 91'. Stephen loved the game of baseketball and was a member of the Bland Rockets that went on to play for the state title. Diane wanted to give back to the community for the suppport she recieved during the loss of her son , so she established the J Stephen Lindamood Endowment. The fund provides a yearly scholoarship in the amount of $5000, and the recipent is selected based on a number of factors. Each eligible student is asked to submit an application that includes school transcript, essay and letter(s) of recommendation. The information is reviewed by the committee and a recipient is selected.
Our mission is to raise additional funds through a variety of events and to increase the yearly scholarship amount over time. Diane achieved her goal of making the fund sustainable, and it's the goal of the committe to ensure that sustainability.
