Rhett Lathan Scholarship Fund Raises Thousands of Dollars Every Year for Students, LIVINGSTON, February 4, 2016 - In October of 2012, local youth, 16 year old Rhett Lathan of Livingston High School was senselessly killed. Since that terrible day, Rhett's family has established the Rhett Lathan Memorial Scholarship Fund. The fund raises literally thousands and thousands of dollars every year for East Texas students to further their education and make the community and the world a better place. On Wednesday morning, Rhett's dad, Brian Lathan, asked if PolkCountyToday.com would help promote the fund. We agreed and met with the friendly staff at Suburban Propane located on Pan American Drive in Livingston. Brian is putting up a super nice, super rugged, custom hand crafted and welded western style grill. The grill can accommodate a large amount of beef, vegetables, or whatever you like to grill (it can handle it). This grill will last a lifetime and can be passed on for another lifetime. The grill is being raffled for just $1 a raffle ticket, or 6 tickets for $5. If you're interested call 936-328-6191.
The winning ticket will be drawn at the Rhett Lathan Memorial Team Roping at WR Baker's Ranch in Goodrich in May.
