About Lisa J. Stubbs

In 1992, the scholarship program was dedicated to Lisa J. Stubbs Lisa J. Stubbs, a Keesler Federal employee of over 8 years. While employed full time at the credit union, Lisa attended night classes, working toward her degree. Lisa died at the age of 25 after a lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis.
