Gerry Lane Scholarship Awarded April 2017

The Gerry Lane Scholarship Presented by SME for the 2016 academic year was awarded in April 2017. The Gerry Lane Scholarship Presented by SME was established through the generosity of the Gerry Lane family. The scholarship was created to financially help a selected student to pursue leading-edge sales training from the Professional Sales Institute at LSU’s E.J. Ourso College of Business.

The criteria to be considered for the scholarship included being enrolled as a full-time marketing undergraduate student in LSU’s E. J. Ourso College of Business.  The student must have a 2.4 or better grade point average. Del Baker was awarded the $1,500 scholarship this year.  He is a senior graduating in May with a BS in Marketing and a concentration in Professional Sales.
