NATCHITOCHES – We are proud to announce that the 2020 recipient of the Luther Lott, Sr. Memorial Scholarship, Waylon Washington, has graduated from Northwestern State University! It is a four-year scholarship established by the Lott family for a full-time Northwestern State University student who is the dependent of a Lott Oil employee.  His father, Martin Washington, is valued employee of Lott Oil’s Natchitoches facility.

Waylon received his Bachelor of Arts in Communications with a minor in Social Sciences. He completed his college career with a 3.0 GPA! While attending NSU, he was a member of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, NABJ, NAACP, and the NSU Demon Football Team. In Fall of 2023, he was honored as a member of the Homecoming Court!
