For a Louisiana mother, her son’s legacy lives on through scholarships


David Trosclair’s story, and that of his mother, is woven with immense tragedy, bravery, loss, heartache and now an overwhelming desire to help others traveling a similar path.

Trosclair was an honor student and rising star in the School of Kinesiology at UL Lafayette who passed away suddenly in his sleep in 2010.

A scholarship that honors his life and legacy was created by his mother, Carol Trosclair, shortly after his death.

Her mission, to help other students majoring in Kinesiology focus on a single aim and secure a future for themselves. 

To help raise funds for this scholarship, Carol partners with local businesses in the community who identified with her goals, by giving back to the community while helping students succeed.

To do your part and help students avoid becoming saddled with student debt.

Buy a $10 ticket from Carol to win a custom designed cruise for 2 by calling (337) 255-8155. Carol will stop whatever she is doing, drive to your location and hand over a ticket, collect the $10 and then take a selfie.

Another fun part, that same ticket gets you a free car wash at any Todd’s Car Wash location throughout Acadiana or you can take that ticket to five other businesses in the area for FREE goodies!

Tickets can also be purchased at Travel Machine Inc., 100 Westmark Blvd. in Lafayette, La. Ask for Kermit Duhon.

Carol says when other K-P-A members reach their goals in higher education, her son’s legacy continues through their success.
