Lisa Ann Gallagher Scholarship

Lisa Gallagher

The Lisa Ann Gallagher Memorial Scholarship was set up by family and friends of Lisa, a 1978 graduate of Huron High School.  She participated in school activities, committees and sports, and was the 1977 Homecoming queen.  Lisa attended Michigan State University and graduated in 1982 with a Business and General Engineering degree.  Between her Junior and Senior years she participated in studies abroad for a semester in London and then traveled in Europe that summer.  She married and started her career in business and technology, and was a mother to three children. Lisa was adventurous and a leader.  Her activities were running, climbing Mt. Whitney and Mt. Rainier and competitive skydiving.  Lisa’s career grew quickly and she became a Senior Vice President of the net market division of a Fortune 500 company.  She encouraged her children to be as passionate about life as she was, remain positive and step up to challenges.  Lisa died in an accident August 26, 2001 at the age of 41.
