Larry & Bobby Wallace Memorial Scholarship

Larry and Bobby were the two youngest brothers in the Wallace family and they both left precious memories that we can cherish forever. They were active members of New Mount Zion Baptist Church where they accepted Christ at a young age. Also, they were educated in the Richardson School District and lived a very productive life until they were called home to be with the Lord.

Larry and Bobby were very loving and generous brothers; they were two that you could always count on in a time of need. Our brothers loved life and they loved people. If there were a way to brighten your day and cheer a person up, Larry and Bobby could do it.

The Wallace family would like to thank everyone that donated in honor of the first Annual Larry and Bobby Wallace Memorial Scholarship.

We hope and pray that the recipient of this scholarship will be blessed tremendously in honor of our brothers who are gone, but not forgotten. We are given great joy to award a young student with a blessing to contribute to his or her college education. We thank all students for their participation and we hope you are blessed to have a successful year in college.
