LYNN PERROTT MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP
Lynn Perrott served as the Region 7 Regional Administrative Chair from 1997-2014. Her first joy was working with the athletes in our region, and she worked to support their participation in the sport at all levels. She took pride in watching our athletes reaching their goals in the sport of gymnastics and continuing their gymnastics careers in college. Lynn had a positive outlook on life, even in the face of her illness. She will be remembered by her sense of humor and smile that she shared with the athletes, coaches and judges in Region 7. Lynn’s background in gymnastics began in dance, and she had a great appreciation for artistry expressed by our athletes. Lynn’s husband, Richard Martin, was active with reviewing scholarship processes and applications. He and Lynn both shared a passion for the sport of gymnastics. Sadly, Richard passed away last summer, however his daughters will continue to stay involved with the scholarship program. It is a fitting tribute to both Lynn and Richard to offer a Memorial Scholarship that will assist an athlete to continue to pursue her academic goals in college, and athletic goals in gymnastics.
