L. David Lyons Scholarship Fund

 
Dave Lyons was a champion for Providence Cristo Rey High School from the very beginning. He ended his professional career with PCRHS as part of our fundraising team, but held executive leadership positions in the finance world for many years. He served on several nonprofit boards, and had a heart for helping others in need. 
 
Dave passed away on November 24, 2016. This scholarship fund was named for him in acknowledgement of his dedication to our school and love for the students we serve. This scholarship's purpose is for funding the cost "gap" between the cost of college tuition, books, room & board, and the sum total of scholarships, grants, and federal & state financial aid.
