Lloyd and Lois Elmore Scholarship

Through a generous gift from Lloyd and Lois Elmore, a trust has been established to make scholarships of approximately $1,000 per semester available annually, depending on need. Scholarship recipients must be active in a Southern Baptist Church or in a Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The scholarship recipients must attend Truman.

Lloyd and Lois (Trower) Elmore operated a family farm in the Gibbs, Mo., community for 50 years before moving to LaPlata in 1968. Lloyd was a member of the Christian Church in Gibbs and LaPlata. Lois was the daughter of a Baptist minister and attended the Southern Baptist Church in LaPlata. She was also a member of the Loyal Bereans Class of the LaPlata Christian Church. The Elmores established the trust fund to provide an educational opportunity for students in the northeast Missouri area who are actively involved in their church.
