Softball Receives First Scholarship Endowment
BATON ROUGE, La. – Before the series finale against South Carolina Sunday afternoon, the LSU softball team received a special gift in the form of the program’s first-ever scholarship endowment from the Tiger Athletic Foundation, which going forward will bear current head coach Beth Torina’s name along with that of the donor in Sandra J. Braddock.
The Sandra J. Braddock Scholarship Endowment honoring head softball coach Beth Torina will aid the program in helping offset the scholarship costs for current and future student-athletes.
The TAF Foundation of Champions Scholarship Endowment program began in 1999 and has seen steady growth over its 17-year existence.
The purpose of the program is to provide a perpetual source of financial support for athletic scholarships through a general scholarship endowment fund. Earnings generated from the endowed scholarship fund will be used to offset the scholarship costs for current and future student-athletes.
As costs for scholarships continue to climb, building a healthy endowment is vital to the future success of LSU Athletics. Those interested in learning more about the program should contact the TAF Development office at 225-578-4823 or visit www.lsutaf.org/endowmentscholarships.
