As the 2018 high school regular season draws to a close, the Georgia Lacrosse Officials Association (GLOA) is pleased again to offer summer lacrosse camp scholarships in memory of Ron Mallonee through the Ron Mallonee Scholarship Fund. This summer will mark the fourteenth year we are offering the scholarships in Ron’s memory to assist deserving high school boys who have a passion for the sport of lacrosse and a desire to improve to attend a summer lacrosse camp. Since the Fund’s inception in 2005, GLOA has been able to provide scholarships to over 86 deserving players from the state of Georgia. We have been honored and privileged to serve Ron’s memory in this way.
A veteran lacrosse official in Georgia, Ron was a Charter Member of the association who passed away in 2004 after a brief battle with cancer. Those of you who had the opportunity to meet and work with Ron will undoubtedly remember his passion for the game. His presence was welcomed on the field by coaches, officials, and players due to his outgoing nature, his enthusiasm, and his friendly demeanor. The official GLOA coin that is flipped before each game bears his image as a continuing reminder to all of us of his legacy.
GLOA will offer camp scholarships for the 2018 Georgia Tech Boys Lacrosse Camp or alternate. More information about the Georgia Tech camp is available online: http://www.gtlaxcamps.com/
The Ron Mallonee Scholarship recipients will be honored at the 2018 GHSA State Championships. (KSU Stadium, start times TBD). The player and his parents will be guests of GLOA at the game on Saturday, May 19th. The awards will be presented at half-time on the championship field.
