BATON ROUGE – LSU Campus Life, a department within the Office of the Dean of Students, has awarded the 2017 Tom W. Dutton Scholarship Award for participation and leadership in campus and community service to ten female students who were nominated and who applied for consideration. Three of the recipients are from the E. J. Ourso College of Business — Christina Bastien, a public administration graduate student from Port-au-Prince, Haiti; Megan Manno, an accounting senior from Houma, La. and Alix Perry, an accounting senior from Carencro, La.

The award is presented annually to female undergraduate or graduate student(s) for outstanding service to the university community through participation and leadership in community service activities while attending LSU. Additional criteria include full-time status, a 3.0 cumulative GPA, and good academic and disciplinary standing with the university. No student may receive the award more than once while enrolled at LSU.

Award winners will be recognized at the Love Purple, Live Gold Awards on April 17, 2018. The award also carries a $250 or $500 stipend. Click here for the full list of recipients.  

The award was established through a bequest that was left to LSU in 1969 by the late Tom W. Dutton. Dutton was a member of the LSU Board of Supervisors from 1940-1967. He also served as the vice chair and the chairman of the board from 1940-1944 and 1950-1952 respectively.
