NPC Friends and Family, the nonprofit alliance supporting Northland Pioneer College (NPC) students, is now accepting applications for the $1,000 Martin Lucas Memorial Scholarship award for fall 2023.
Martin was a longtime resident of Snowflake who worked for over thirty years as a barber in Phoenix and Snowflake. Hallie, his wife of fifty years, retired from NPC after over nineteen years of service at the college. Together, they raised one daughter, Tonya, and two sons, Destry and Lance.
A scholarship was formed to honor Martin after he passed away in the summer of 2022. After he underwent two hand surgeries in 2014, Martin experienced a disability that affected the use of his hand. After the experience, he held a special place in his heart for those with disabilities.
The scholarship is a tribute to the empathy he felt for those who despite the challenges created by disabilities, strive to achieve more. Application information can be found at www.npc.edu/scholarships/martin-lucas-memorial-scholarship. The application deadline is Thursday, July 27, 2023.
For specific questions about applying for the scholarship, please contact NPC Friends and Family Executive Director Betsyann Wilson at email@example.com. Since the fall of 2014, NPC Friends and Family has awarded over 600 scholarships to NPC students, making a tremendous difference in their pursuit of post-secondary education.
