Lauren Locke inks a scholarship to Troy University

Lauren Locke inks a scholarship to Troy University

Lauren Locke sat on stage before family, friends, teammates and classmates Wednesday, March 6 and made her choice official.  Locke will be attending Troy University as an integral part of their track team in the 2019-20 season.

Locke has been a standout runner at Marianna High School throughout her high school years. She not only has stood out as an exceptional athlete, but is just as equally an academic standout, making all As throughout high school. As a result of her high achievements both academically and athletically, Locke will have no worries about the cost of her education. She is the recipient of both academic and athletic scholarship awards. 

As far as her future after college, Locke is undecided and readily admits, she has changed her mind more than a few times.  Lately, she says she is leaning towards physical therapy. 

As a student at Marianna High, Lauren is a member of BETA, NHS (National Honor Society), Juniorettes, FCA (Fellow Christian Athletes), Anchor Club, and SGA (Student Government Association). 

When asked about how she achieved where she is today, Lauren is quick to say, “I thank God, my family, coach Larson and my friend Bowen Rudd. He was like a coach to me and encourage me every day.”

Lauren is the daughter of Jimmy and Mary Locke, and Jennifer Locke.  She has a younger sister, Emily Locke and a younger brother, Jake Locke. She is the granddaughter of Patricia Locke, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Donaldson, and Mr. and Mrs. John Carter.
