Erin Fowler Memorial Scholarship Fund

Victim Impact Panel's Oklahoma Challenge Student Video Scholarship Competition is supported from funds from the Erin Fowler Memorial Scholarship Fund.

Erin Fowler served as Director of Operations for Victims’ Impact Panel of Oklahoma for several years. She led day-to-day operations, coordinated panels across the state, and spoke to groups as small as three people to as large as 500.

Erin exemplified the overall mission of VIP: ending distracted and impaired driving. She had a laugh that was contagious, an optimism that was inspiring, and a passion that was far-reaching.

When she wasn’t working, Erin was busy raising three daughters, and being active in her daughters' schools and after-school programs, and in her local community. She was very passionate about her role within and VIP in general but was far more passionate about her role as mother to her daughters.

In July of 2022, Erin's life was taken in a senseless act of violence.

One of Erin’s final projects at VIP was the creation of three scholarships. Partnering with Workzonesafe.com and the Oklahoma Challenge program we are establishing a fund that will provide for funding these scholarships. Two scholarships will directly benefit students and be awarded regularly, and one will benefit schools by bringing a student impact panel at no cost.

All support received goes towards the overall scholarship reserve fund.
