Louise and George Lyon were lifelong members of the Ocean Park Civic League and dedicated a good portion of their free time to serving the community in which they lived. They were especially committed to supporting the Ocean Park Volunteer Rescue Squad which was the first all volunteer rescue squad established in Virginia Beach and is still in operation today on Shore Drive in Ocean Park. This four year scholarship recognizes student achievement and encourages community volunteerism.
