5k Fox Trot honors late chamber director


Staff Report



Supporters of the Lorie Neal Scholarship fund ran in support, despite a wet Sept. 27 day.


RIO GRANDE — The second annual 2015 5K Fox Trot event was held Sept. 27, benefiting the Alpha Mu Beta Lorie Neal Scholarship.

Despite the drizzly weather, runners still came to support the cause.

The AMB Alumni started the scholarship fund in honor and remembrance of Lorie Neal, who died unexpectedly in 2013. Neal was the executive director of the Gallia County Chamber of Commerce. Many knew Lorie through her commitment to helping businesses and Gallia County communities grow to their potential. She was also a loyal and active member of the AMB Alumni organization, helping to maintain its legacy of fellowship.

The Lorie Neal Scholarship Fund was established to honor and support those who place high value on scholastic achievement while remembering the importance of supporting community.

The third annual Fox Trot will be held on the streets of the University of Rio Grande on Saturday, Oct. 8, 2016. If individuals have any questions, suggestions or comments, contact AMBFoxtrot@gmail.com.
