Supporting Values Through College Access
Lois Dilts Coleman
Chosen as a "keeper" by her foster parents, Lois worked for and truly appreciated everything she attained in life.
She graduated schools in Hamilton Township and attended Rider College night school [when it was on Carroll St in Trenton] while a secretary in an insurance office in Trenton. Later in life, Lois completed courses at Mercer County Community College. At the same time, she was offered a position at Princeton University, assisting new students.
Lois volunteered at school PTA, school library, and recorded for the blind for many years. She was a member of Rainbow Girls, Eastern Star, a Sunday School teacher and choir member.
After marriage and two children, she put her family first, supporting and encouraging but never interfering with their activities, and always putting the needs of others ahead of her own interests.
At an early age, Lois was sensitive to the need for "diversity" by making friends with other children at school, even though others thought these friendships as not appropriate. She might have been more involved with diversity issues if not dominated by other adults' viewpoints.
Lois's family felt that the Boys & Girls Clubs stood for many of the values that Lois demonstrated in her life
Giving to others above self
Importance of higher education
Having a strong work ethic
To memorialize her life, the family established an endowment fund in her name at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Mercer County to support the College Access Program to help the area teens prepare for, enroll in and go to college. The Lois Dilts Coleman endowment fund also supports an annual scholarship to a Club teen going to Mercer County Community College.
