2019 Dr. Harrison D. Lawless Scholarship Awards
Dr. Harrison D. Lawless was a 1928 graduate of McKinley High School. Throughout his career as an educator, he was committed to the proper training and education of young people in the State of Louisiana. Dr. Lawless will be long-remembered for his exemplary work at Southern University (Baton Rouge) as Dean and Coordinator of Freshman Studies. The commitment to excellence, love and devotion that typified his work with young people, especially underprivileged minority students, was the legacy that provided the impetus for the Dr. Harrison D. Lawless Award. It is in keeping with his spirit that the McKinley High School Alumni Association bestows this award in his honor.
Next year (2019) five (5) recipients were selected to receive the Dr. Harrison D. Lawless Award in the amount of $1,000 each.
