Alexandra Lawson Memorial Scholarship

The Alexandra Lawson Memorial Scholarship was established by her mother Jackie, father David, and brother Peter, after Alex’s passing at age 22. Alex had an astonishing spirit, was a natural athlete and musician, and was a passionate artist. This award fulfills Alex’s dream of helping others fight addiction. This scholarship fund is for students who are studying to help people recover from addiction through the Credentialed Alcoholism & Substance Abuse Counselor (CASAC) Program or through enrollment in the Human Services or Individual Studies degree programs in pursuit of mental health counseling or addiction recovery work. Throughout her lifelong fight with mental illness and addiction, Alex’s counselors helped make her stronger, and this scholarship will allow people in our community to offer that same support to others struggling with addiction. Through this scholarship, Alex’s legacy will help stop the stigma and shame that comes with addiction. No one wants to be an addict. EST. 2020
