Lucas Irons Memorial Scholarship Fund
“To support the next Lucas in finding a powerful and positive voice in his or her wild and precious Life”,
Lucas Irons was a student at Green Fields in the early 2000’s. He and his family spent many summers in the Alaskan wilderness building a home there. His mother, Jean, is a writer. Her book, "Arctic Son", is about Lucas and their adventures in Alaska. Lucas’s father, Tom, documented their Alaskan adventure and has turned it into a full length documentary by the same name that has won several awards at film festivals. Both Tom and Jean were also stained glass artists and crafted and donated the beautiful stained glass at the entrance to the library. Lucas attended the UofA and worked as a nurse for many years. Tragically, at the young age of 27, Lucas passed away unexpectedly. At that time, Lucas’ parents set up a scholarship fund in his name.
The Irons’ have designated this scholarship to help a student attend an Interim that they otherwise might not be able to afford. This scholarship is a way to give a Green Fields student an opportunity that Lucas didn’t have while he was at Green Fields.
