Local companies sign up to support annual Kinesiology Scholarships
Several local businesses and franchisees have signed on again to help fund the David Trosclair Memorial Kinesiology Scholarship, which is named in honor of the UL kinesiology student who died just before his graduation.
Each year, Carol Trosler, David’s mother, leads a fundraising drive to fund scholarships. The fundraiser, now in its eleventh year, is offering a two-person Travel Machine vacation to the person who contributes the most money, either by buying tickets, selling tickets, or donating to the fund.

In exchange for a $10 donation, people receive a ticket that can be exchanged for one of the many prizes offered by local businesses. In September, tickets can be used for a free $25 car wash at Todd’s Car Wash, or a free hamburger or cheeseburger at Judice Inn.
In October, tickets can be used for a free flatbread at Tropical Smoothie, or free drip coffee or tea with pastries at Rêve Coffee Roasters. In November, tickets can be redeemed for a free 6-inch roll at Roly Poly or a free loaf of bread at Great Harvest Bread.
“David has not been able to achieve all of his career goals,” said Carol Trusclair, “but through his scholarship he helps others realize their ambitions – in this way David’s aspirations are reached through the successful careers of those who have been awarded a scholarship.” In a statement.
