Blair Michaela Shanahan Lane was a beloved, big-hearted 11 year old when she passed away in 2011. In Blair’s memory, her family has honored her desire to change the world by providing hope, comfort, support, clothing and other basic necessities to children in distressed situations through a non-profit organization called Blair’s Foster Socks. Blair’s Foster Socks established the Blair Michaela Shanahan Lane Memorial Scholarship in 2016 to build upon Blair’s loving legacy by providing scholarships to students in distressed situations.
