Allen Lichliter Memorial Scholarship Application


The Allen Lichliter Memorial Scholarship Fund was established from donations made in Memory of Allen Lichliter, an amazing husband, daddy, grandpa, and friend to many. Allen believed that if you loved life and tried, you could do anything.  His accomplishments spoke to what he believed, as Allen loved his job and always did his best, even without a college degree. Allen went from starting as an oil rigger all the way to being a supervisor and consultant within his company. His work ethic demonstrates that if you love life, if you try hard, and if you dedicate yourself, you can succeed.

The Allen Lichliter Memorial Scholarship provides a one-time scholarship of $1,000.
