2011 Lawrence Harris Scholarship Awards
In December of 1992, Friend Bank (Slocomb National Bank) established the Lawrence Harris Endowed Scholarship Fund to advance the education of deserving undergraduate students who enroll full-time as an entering freshman, transfer student, or continuing full-time undergraduate student at the University of Alabama.
Horace Mann, the “Father of American Education,” once said, “A human being is not attaining his full heights until he is educated.” At Friend Bank, we believe in helping young people from our community achieve their full potential by offering financial assistance to pursue higher education. This is why we have already awarded in excess of $98,500.00 through the Lawrence Harris Scholarship and look forward to continuing this program for future students. The Scholarship is awarded only to Slocomb High School graduates.
