This scholarship was established by the family of Eugene Orlando to honor his legacy of commitment to hard work and the importance of an education. After graduating from LSSU in 1981, Eugene passionately served his Sault Ste. Marie Ontario community as an accountant for over 30 years. His untimely passing meant that he never had the opportunity to enjoy retirement, which would have been the ideal reward after so many years of hard work. All of Eugene’s success can be attributed to his unyielding work ethic, a willingness to take risks, and ultimately a love for his profession. He had the courage and vision to forge his own path and become a highly-respected part of the business community. Outside of the office Eugene was a gifted musician, a proud family-man, and is fondly remembered for his sense of humor and positive outlook. Eugene was a life-long learner, and firmly believed in the importance of an education. Successful candidates must be a student of junior status with a minimum 3.0 GPA who is pursuing a Lukenda School of Business Accounting degree.
