Reid Scholarship Fund
Since 1993, the
LOAS conferences have provided partial scholarships to conferees needing
financial assistance for their week on Star Island. In October 1997, the
program was named the Lee Reid Scholarship Fund in honor of Rev. Lee Reid, a
LOAS conferee who passed away that year.
