Joan Sanders Memorial Scholarship

Dr. Joan Sanders was a long-time faculty member in what is now the FLC Health & Human Performance department. She started the FLC Intramural Sports program. She passed away in 1996 after her retirement. This endowed scholarship of $500 has been developed in her name. One scholarship recipient will be selected.

Dr. Jo Ann Soignier Sport Administration Scholarship

Dr. Jo Ann Soignier was a long-time faculty member in what is now the FLC Health & Human Performance department and retired in 2008. She helped create the Sport Administration Option of the Health & Human Performance degree program and spent years supervising students in their Sport Administration practicum and internship experiences. As a 1984 graduate of Fort Lewis, Dr. Soignier created this $500 scholarship to give back to the institution where she spent much of her academic and professional careers.
