Virginia Tech Associate Head Coach and Defensive Coordinator Bud Foster’s Lunch Pail Defense Foundation, a non profit organization, is pleased to announce the recipients of its 2016 Lunch Pail Scholarships.
This year the Foundation awarded 4 individual scholarships, worth $5,000.00 each, to very deserving students from the New River and Roanoke Valleys. The recipients are Justin Davis, Giles County High School; Tyrique Lowery, Christiansburg High School; Deasha Manns, Eastern Montgomery High School; and Hannah Reed, Pulaski County High School. These scholarships are sent directly to the College or University of each recipients choice in order to defray their educational costs.
Coach Foster presented these students their awards on field immediately preceding the kick off of the spring game on April 23, 2016. On the Sunday afterward, the Lunch Pail Defense Foundation honored the students and their families with a dinner at Bull and Bones restaurant, during which Coach Foster presented their checks personally and recognized many of their achievements that earned them their scholarships. Coach Foster later signed autographs, took pictures and had personal conversations with each student and his/ her family. The Foundation would like to thank Bull and Bones Restaurant and Divilbiss Funeral Home in Radford for sponsoring the dinner.
To date the Lunch Pail Defense Foundation has awarded $67,500.00 in scholarships to New River Valley and Roanoke Valley students.
