Edwin W. Lawrence, Sr., dedicated his life to the educational and professional development of others. As a former Professional Baseball Player, Public School Educator/Administrator, Collegiate Director of Athletics (Cheyney State University and University of Alaska -Fairbanks), and Executive Director of the Major League Baseball Umpire Development Program, his combined love of sports and passion for education impacted the lives of many along his path.

In his memory and keeping the spirit of his kindness and desire to see others achieve, both on and off the playing field, the PYF Foundation has established the Edwin W. Lawrence, Sr., Pipeline Access Scholarship in his memory. These scholarships will be used to assist select high school senior student athletes with academic preparation as well as college fees.

“For those of you that had a chance to know my Dad you know he was the kind of person that was always determined to help others along the way.”— PYF Founder – Edwin “Chip” Lawrence, Jr.
