Members of the Natchitoches Lions Club and Lions Scholarship Committee announce $2,500 gift to NSU Foundation. From L-R, Lions Scholarship chair Dr. William Broussard, Lion Gilbert Raymond, NSU Foundation Exec. Director Drake Owens, Lion Sophie Packard, and Lion President Dr. Pete Wardell.

The Natchitoches Lions Club extended its commitment to the Northwestern State University Foundation, presenting NSU Foundation Executive Director with a $2,500 contribution to the “Natchitoches Lions Endowed Scholarship.”

In 2009, the Natchitoches Lions Club showed their support of Natchitoches youth by presenting the Northwestern State University Foundation with a $10,000 check to establish the scholarship.

“We’re proud to continue our commitment to Natchitoches’ youth, who  deserve the support of local civic organizations,” said Dr. Pete Wardell, Natchitoches Lions president.

In addition to the scholarship, the club conducts a variety of projects and events, including volunteerism for the Natchitoches Christmas Festival, with the Lions Eye Foundation, and the Lions Children’s Camp. Lions Clubs International is the world’s largest service club organization with nearly 1.3 million members in approximately 45,000 clubs in 202 countries and geographical areas around the world.

The 2009-10 recipient was Lincoln Hall, and the 2010 recipient will be announced shortly.
