The David Lasseter/Murfreesboro Central High School Class of 1969 Scholarship tries to help class members and their families to meet their educational goals. A steering committee reviews applications for the scholarship and awards the scholarship. Members of the committee include David Lasseter, Helen Johnson Alford, Tommy Campbell, Jennifer Jordan-Henley, and Judy Anderson Whitehill. Scholarships are for Middle Tennessee State University in Murfreesboro, and the MTSU Foundation coordinates the scholarship program. All donations to the scholarship fund are tax-deductible. The scholarship program not only allows the class to appreciate the legacy of the past but also to help build for the future.
