“The Huntsville Madison County Auburn Club, Larissa Chastain Memorial Scholarship”
Although our donor did not want any recognition for their generous gift, they did love the idea of naming the endowment in honor of a current or former club officer. Our board of directors unanimously chose, Larissa Chastain, who has served on this board for over 10 years. In her time here she's put in 9 years and rigorous hours as the club's scholarship co-chair and chairman. Year after year she personally connects with our scholarship winners and their families, always treating them like they're one of her own.
