The Scholarship Story
The Darren Lajaunie Tennis Scholarship Fund (DLTSF) was set up after the passing of Darren Lajaunie in May 2011, from cancer, by his wife Camille and son, Andrew. Darren was an avid tennis player his whole life. He began playing at J. Frank Dobie High School, on the club level at the University of Texas, in Austin, and in many adult league tournaments until his passing in 2011. The DLTSF will continue to award college scholarships to the seniors on the J. Frank Dobie High School Tennis Team, in addition to now awarding tennis camp and college scholarships to members of the Harry Taylor Tennis Center, in Pasadena, Texas.
