Nicholls scholarship memorializes victim of drunk driving

The Terrebonne Alcohol and Drug Abuse Council (ADAC) has established the Lindsey Robert Fontenot Memorial Scholarship at Nicholls State University, in honor of a Gray resident who was killed by a drunk driver on July 2, 2010.

With an initial donation of $1,000 from ADAC, the scholarship will be awarded in two installments of $500 each to a single recipient. Eligibility criteria include performing 10 hours of service learning or community service with ADAC; demonstrating financial need; and declaring a major that would readily lead to advocacy against drinking and driving, including but not limited to education, nursing, allied health and sociology.
