Lawson Family Scholarship Fund

Joe and Esther Lawson had been awarding scholarships to Burney High School students since 1991. Esther passed away at the age of 81 and Joe at the age of 84. The executors of their estate arranged to have the scholarship administered by the Community Foundation. The Community Foundation works with Burney High School to continue awarding the scholarships. Joe and Esther Lawson both served during World War II, Joe in the Navy and Esther as an Air Force Service Pilot. The couple moved to Burney in 1946 where Joe worked as a saw filer and Esther as a secretary for the Scott Lumber Company until they retired.
