Tommy Thomason Civic Leadership Scholarship
Orville Glen "Tommy" Thomason was Loara's first principal, and his educational legacy and influence stretches over his 97-year life span. Tommy was born on December 5, 1907 in Adrian, Missouri, then moved to LaVerne, California in 1918, where he starred in football, basketball, track and baseball at Bonita High School and La Verne College. Tommy began his career as teacher and coach in Baldwin Park, Claremont and at his alma mater, Bonita High School. Tommy's Christian principles called him into work with the YMCA, first in Hollywood and then Anaheim, where he served as General Director for six years. In 1953, Tommy returned to education as an Administrator at Anaheim High School, Fremont and Crescent Junior High Schools. His final position was at Loara High School, where he served as the first Principal from 1962 to 1973
The LSAA Tommy Thomason Civic Leadership Scholarship (TTCL) was created to honor his dedication to Loara and its students, and to offer financial support to 12th grade students continuing their education after graduation.
This year LSAA will offer two (2) $1,000 Scholarships for qualified Loara High School seniors. This scholarship acknowledges the achievements of Seniors from Loara High School who exemplify well-rounded qualities and civic responsibility.
