Ila Mason passed away in the Fall of 2016. Her family asked that people donate to LEF in lieu of flowers to support Mrs. Mason's love of Lakewood Schools and the students. When asked how they would like to see those funds used, the family asked that we create a scholarship in her memory for graduating seniors.
Mrs. Mason was a member of the Lakewood community most of her life, graduating from Hebron High School in 1950, serving as the LHS Secretary for 32 years and raising her 8 children in the Lakewood School system. She was an active member of the community - 25 year member of the Phi Beta Psi Sorority, Founding Board Member of the Buckeye Lake Historical Museum, Hebron Veterans Committee, Lakewood Retirees Breakfast and Lakewood Hall of Fame Inductee. Mrs. Mason was also a member of the Hebron Christian Church for more than 50 years where she filled many leadership roles.
Contributing to the community in a positive way through school, church and other groups was very important to her. That's why this scholarship is awarded to an individual who has had a positive impact on their school, church or community through leadership roles or volunteer activities.
The 2017 scholarship recipient was Morgan Gregg.
