Lauren Cowart was taken from us at the young age of 37 in a tragic boating incident that also took the life of her five year old daughter, Blakely. Lauren was a loving daughter and mother, as well as, a caring friend to many. Very outgoing, she never met a stranger and made everyone feel like family. She was always happy!As a talented designer, she was very detailed and professional in her work. She was a steadfast teammate. Lauren was heavily involved in AAF and particularly loved the American Advertising Awards. While we will miss Lauren always, the recipient of this $500 memorial scholarship will portray the traits that remind us of Lauren’s irreplaceable spirit.
