A $1,000 scholarship is awarded each year in memory of Shannon Lee Lloyd, a student at Fullerton Magnet Center from 1999 to 2001. This scholarship was awarded for the first time in 2012, Shannon’s graduating class. It is now given each year to an outstanding OPS graduating senior.
Shannon Lloyd’s life was a supernova, short but bright, a life filled with happiness and passion. Her spirit and joy for life warmed the hearts of all who knew her. She was just seven when a tragic accident took her life. She was struck by a car while riding her bike in the school’s neighborhood. Though Shannon did not survive her injuries, the helmet she was wearing gave her a fighting chance.
Inspired by Shannon’s memory, family and friends have been involved in promoting neighborhood and bicycle safety through driver awareness and use of bicycle helmets.
