The Alan Lott Outstanding Character Award is given at Scottsboro High School each year to a freshman who meets the following qualifications:
Has strong moral character
Is kind and respectful to others
Maintains excellent grades
Is respected by the principal, teachers, and students
Exhibits inner strength and endurance
Is responsible, sets personal goals, and works to achieve them
In May 2008 an additional award along with a scholarship was given to a member of Alan's graduating class based on teacher recommendation and an essay entitled, "What it Means to be a Friend."
Special thanks goes to everyone who contributed to the scholarship fund, and
to Emily Thompson and the Scottsboro High School track and cross-country teams for sponsoring the "Alan Lott Walk/Run of Courage"
for three years to raise money for the fund in Alan's memory.
