Marie Key Martin Scholarship
Marie Key Martin was a founding member of the Republican Women of Southwest Louisiana. She served as a club officer in many positions including President. She also was an LFRW regional Vice-President. Marie served on the republican state central committee and the local republican parish executive committee. Marie had a passion for politics and education. She led several drives to get our local high school students registered to vote. Marie was awarded the Presidents Circle Award by the National Republican Committee in 2004 for her tireless efforts in voter registration. Marie was passionate about education, in particular for young women. She was always interested in the current state of public education having rarely missed a local school board meeting. Marie passed away in October of 2007. In her memory, our club has awarded annually a $500 scholarship to a college bound, local high school senior girl who demonstrates drive, dedication and passion for excellence and achievement.
