Formed in January 1980, the LSSC Foundation is a direct support organization established for the purpose of assisting the college in fulfilling its mission of excellence in education, service to the community and financial assistance to qualified students.
Each year, the Foundation provides over $500,000 for Presidential, Principal, Ambassador and Financial Aid Scholarships, as well as additional funds for special scholarships approved through the Foundations Scholarship Committee. In addition, the Foundation currently administers over 350 scholarships provided by individuals, corporations, and civic organizations.
The Foundation also supports LSSC through the funding of projects which directly or indirectly benefit students. These projects have included assistance for the Classroom Instructional Equipment, Athletics Department Equipment, the College Libraries, the Nursing Program, College Computer Labs, and Support for faculty, staff, and students.
