Lauri A. Nicolosi, is a dear staff member of the Los Rios Community College District, whom we recently lost in the battle against cancer. Lauri is also my beloved and most revered cousin. Lauri dedicated decades of her life converting college texts and learning materials to braille, audio, and other media — making them consumable to students with various sensory challenges such as blindness, or hearing impairment. Upon her transitioning from this life, Lauri's friends, family, and coworkers started a memorial scholarship fund to provide exceptionally talented and hardworking students much needed financial education assistance. This seed fund is intended to help provide another venue for directing financial contributions to a fund that makes all the difference for exceptional students struggling with financial obstacles to their success.
