Who Can Apply: Purpose of the gift: To support scholarships for students pursuing nursing degrees at institutions of higher learning. This scholarship was established in memory of Zachary Eiland Lansford by his family. On April 24, 1999, at the young age of 17, Zac’s life ended in an unfortunate car accident. Zac was a hero to his young niece and nephews, always willing to play, listen, love, and teach them. His family remembers Zac as a free spirit who lived life to its fullest. Because Zac loved life, hated to see people hurting, and was always willing to help a friend or a stranger, the Zachary Eiland Lansford Memorial Scholarship is designated for a student who wants to go into the field of nursing. The family of Zachary Eiland Lansford is excited and honored to have this opportunity to fund a scholarship, in the hopes of helping others.
