Established by Don Drain in loving memory of his Mother,

Lucille Drain graduated from Boyd High School in 1932 and planned to attend Nursing school but her family lost everything during the Depression so they moved to Newark. It was there that she met and married Edward Drain. She was a strong independent woman and became very active in the community! She was instrumental in the Incorporation of the City of Newark and in forming the Ladies Auxiliary of the Fire Department which helped sustain it as well as provide equipment and uniforms. She was on the City Council for over 35 years and half of that time she was Mayor Pro Tem. She was a dedicated Democrat who volunteraly served the community as Election Clerk and Judge for many years. She and her husband believed in education and supported and belonged to organizations that helped the community and school systems. She also served as PTA President and other functions at the school.

This scholarship honors the legacy of Lucille W. Drain's meaningful impact on her community by assisting with the education of women.
