Lane Talmadge Scholarship
The Lane Talmadge Scholarship Fund was created to assist Specialized Recreation participants with program costs.

This fund was created by Specialized Recreation in Lane Talmadge’s memory and exists thanks to continued donations from Lane’s friends and family. Lane loved theater, movies, puppet shows, music, trips and outings with best friend, Doug. And now Specialized Recreation participants can enjoy activities as he did.

The maximum award per participant is $50 per calendar year. This amount can be used all at once or can be distributed across multiple courses. Please return this completed form to Specialized Recreation at the STAR Center (3873 S 66th St, Tacoma, WA 98409).
