“We are honored to carry on his (Landrum’s) legacy.” stated Ida Washington, CEO.  Many students study hard, work hard, volunteer in the community, are active in Church, but their hard work doesn’t show up on a school transcript.   Landrum was one of those students.   We want to recognize students possessing these valuable yet hard to measure traits and reward them.

Our organization focuses on students who may not normally qualify for traditional scholarships because of test scores or grade points averages.  However, these students many times possess exceptional talent in music, art, or other community involvement and wish to attend college.  This is where we can help.  In the last 5 years, we have awarded over $8,000 in scholarships to local high school students fitting these categories.

The LWLF was established in honor of Minister Landrum Washington, to carry on his dreams and aspirations.  Minister Washington had a sincere desire to help his fellow man and enjoyed sharing his religious philosophy and musical talent to all he encountered.  He had hopes of becoming a college professor and a world class musician.  His dreams were cut short by a very untimely death at the age of 22.  This scholarship is open to any student who has earned a high school diploma or GED, and is pursuing a degree at an accredited college.
