In Memory: Akiba Academy announces the Darryl Lazarow z”l Sports Scholarship Fund

lazarowAkiba dad Darryl Lazarow z”l was a man of great character and purpose and an avid supporter of Akiba Academy and  its sports programs. He enthusiastically enjoyed watching and coaching Akiba athletics, especially soccer. Tragically, Darryl passed away too soon in December 2006, at the young age of 42.
In his memory, The Darryl Lazarow z”l Sports Scholarship Fund has been created by his loving wife Suzy Lazarow-Cohen, and his children Ariana, Jared and Eliana.
These scholarships will be available to Akiba students in kindergarten through eighth grade who need financial assistance in order to participate in sports or fitness programs at Akiba. The offer applies to any sport offered by Akiba through the academic curriculum or through its Discovery afterschool program, or any future program as long as it is a sport or fitness program. Students must apply through the Akiba business office, and the approval process will follow Akiba’s established financial assistance guidelines.
“Darryl’s family is humbled by the opportunity to provide this fund in his memory. We hope it will be a lasting benefit to children who love sports as much as Darryl did throughout his lifetime,” Suzy Lazarow-Cohen said when the announcement was made.
All scholarship awards will be held completely confidential. Akiba will report annually on the distribution of scholarships through this fund. For more information, please contact Akiba’s administrative director, Nancy Skinner, or go to and click on Development to donate online.
