Lyle Olson Scholarship

Lyle Olson joined the Helena Exchange Club in December 1975. Of his many accomplishments Lyle made a tremendous one in our club. He designed and implemented a check and balance system of controlling our Beer sales and the operations at the Fairgrounds. While most us remember him as a very pungently witty and comic story teller, Lyle had a deeply serious side that was almost shy and very humble. This was the side that was revealed in his deep feelings about religion and his devoted work in behalf of his church. This scholarship is given in his memory. Please see the newsletter from 1983 on who Lyle Olson was. His son Kevin started the fund in memory of his father.
