Many towns in the US have ample resources for sports, but limited resources for academics.
In my home town of Alexandria, Louisiana, there were limited resources available to support students who wanted to excel in academics and attend a college in another state.
To support the ambitious students at Alexandria Senior High School in their pursuit of higher education, the Coach Reid Scholarship will go to one student Alexandria Senior High School student who demonstrates academic excellence, leadership, and grit.

We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
