The Allison Jackson Memorial Scholarship was established by family and friends, in memory of Allison Lilia Jackson, who died in early September 1988, just prior to beginning her undergraduate studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara. As a graduate of John Muir High School in Pasadena, California, Allison was accepted to UCSB for the fall quarter of 1988. Unfortunately, Allison suffered from sickle cell anemia - a condition that made her strong and confident in her outlook on life. The disease claimed her life during her participation in the Educational Opportunity Program (EOP) Summer Transitional Enrichment Program (STEP) just short of her beginning to fulfill her promises and aspirations as a university student.
