Congratulations to this year’s winner of the George and Louise Lyon Memorial Scholarship : Taylor McOrmond! She was selected from a very competitive field of exceedingly well qualified applicants. Taylor is a resident of Ocean Park and attends the Legal Studies Academy at First Colonial High School. She will be attending James Madison University in the fall. We were so pleased to see Taylor at the June 10th meeting where she thanked the membership for the scholarship.
George and Louise 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 that is still in operation today on Shore Drive. This scholarship recognizes student achievement and encourages community volunteerism.
