The Haines Society


Created in 2008, The Haines Society was named to honor John Lyman Haines, Jr. – the first Dolphin Scholar who was awarded a $350 scholarship in 1961. Every Dolphin Scholar – past or present – is invited to join The Haines Society. Members join forces to fund a yearly Haines Society Scholarship for the next generation of high achieving applicants.

“Thank you so much to the Haines Society for this scholarship. I feel extremely blessed to have been selected to receive this award going into my senior year of college. I am currently a Chemistry major that attends Xavier University of Louisiana. Following this school year I have been accepted and will be attending LSU Health New Orleans School of Medicine. I am so grateful for the donors’ support and look forward to being able to give back to future scholars.”
