The scholarship program prepares recipients to be ambassadors for safe driving among their peers, family and friends. The PFL Scholarship officially stands for Prepared For Life Scholarship, but to close family and friends, PFL stands for Philip Francis Lutzenkirchen.

Lutzenkirchen attended Lassiter High School in Marietta and continued his education and football career at Auburn University. He passed away in 2014 as a passenger in a distracted and impaired driving accident. The foundation began shortly after and is on a mission to end distracted and impaired driving through the 43 Key Seconds safe driving initiative.
