UL Faculty, friends and family of deceased Kinesiology major David Trosclair gathered Saturday afternoon in Lafayette at Todd's Car Wash to raise funds.
Ever since his tragic passing in 2010, Trosclair has been the inspiration for the David Trosclair Memorial Scholarship Foundation. He was a straight A student who rarely missed class, described by his sister Kathryn as "disciplined, focused".
After ingesting a lethal combination of medication by accident, David Trosclair's heart stopped. In his memory, the University of Louisiana and the Trosclair Family partnered to give scholarships to other Kinesiology students on his behalf.
This is the second year for the scholarship fund and the goal is to raise $15,000 to split between 11 recipients.
During the month of September, members of the community can purchase a ten dollar ticket from Todd's Car Wash, Mr. Keets, Travel Machine Inc, The Orchard or www.thedailysportsbuzz.com.
All of the proceeds go towards the foundation. The ticket also enters you into a giveaway for a Caribbean Cruise for two.
