The Lloyd Aman Workforce Development Scholarship
Lloyd began his career in high school working out of his garage and eventually building (with his dad's help) the current L&A Welding Shop in Custer, SD. Lloyd Aman earned his welding certifications at a trade school in Casper, Wyoming. He also learned machining from a local mentor, as well as by trial and error. Lloyd was a lifelong learner, when YouTube came along, he enjoyed learning new skills – there was not a challenge he would not attempt to tackle. Lloyd was a very helpful and generous man who rescued many a Custer area resident with his variety of skills in mechanics, welding, and machining. Lloyd’s quality work and his commitment to his customers benefited the Custer region for 30+ years. The goal of this scholarship is to remember and honor Lloyd and his commitment to helping others by assisting anyone who desires to pursue training/education toward a career in the skilled trade industry.
The Lloyd Aman Workforce Development Scholarship will be awarded to a graduating senior or a Custer area resident who plans on pursuing training/education toward a career in the skilled trade industry. Scholarship will be paid directly to the educational/training institution indicated in the application. Scholarship recipients are evaluated and selected by the Lloyd Aman Scholarship Committee.
The Lloyd Aman Workforce Development Scholarship is a $1000 one-time scholarship.
