Terry Lamb Enrichment Scholarship
Terry Lamb was a long-time VHF Board Member and life-long community member. His incredible motivation and perseverance, as well as his efforts to engage, involve, and encourage the bleeding disorder community led VHF to establish the Terry Lamb Enrichment Scholarship. The Terry Lamb Enrichment Scholarship focuses on leadership, volunteerism and/or health promotion. The scholarship can be used for any program (i.e. camp, educational/life skill classes, fitness programs or activities, etc.) that enhances one’s self-esteem, confidence, overall health, leadership skills, areas of interest, development of life skills, and volunteerism.
Terry was born and raised in Lynchburg, VA. He was diagnosed as a young child with severe hemophilia but as anyone who ever met him can tell you he never let his diagnosis get in his way. He was a role model and advocate for active involvement in community programming, regular exercise, healthy diet and good treatment for those living with a bleeding disorder. He lived each moment to the fullest with a huge smile on his face and we are so blessed to have had him in our lives.
